Psalm 126

Psalm 126

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.

When the Lord brought back his exiles to Jerusalem,[a]
    it was like a dream!
We were filled with laughter,
    and we sang for joy.
And the other nations said,
    “What amazing things the Lord has done for them.”
Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us!
    What joy!

Restore our fortunes, Lord,
    as streams renew the desert.
Those who plant in tears
    will harvest with shouts of joy.
They weep as they go to plant their seed,
    but they sing as they return with the harvest.

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 126

Psalm 126

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.

Our enemies took us away from Zion.
    But when the Lord brought us home,
    it seemed like a dream to us.
Our mouths were filled with laughter.
    Our tongues sang with joy.
Then the people of other nations said,
    “The Lord has done great things for them.”
The Lord has done great things for us.
    And we are filled with joy.

Lord, bless us with great success again,
    as rain makes streams flow in the Negev Desert.
Those who cry as they plant their crops
    will sing with joy when they gather them in.
Those who go out weeping
    as they carry seeds to plant
will come back singing with joy.
    They will bring the new crop back with them.
