Psalm 126

Psalm 126

A song of ascents.

When the Lord restored the fortunes of[a] Zion,
    we were like those who dreamed.[b]
Our mouths were filled with laughter,
    our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
    “The Lord has done great things for them.”
The Lord has done great things for us,
    and we are filled with joy.

Restore our fortunes,[c] Lord,
    like streams in the Negev.
Those who sow with tears
    will reap with songs of joy.
Those who go out weeping,
    carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
    carrying sheaves with them.

诗篇 126

被掳者归回的喜乐

上圣殿朝圣之诗。

1耶和华带领被掳者归回耶路撒冷的时候,
我们犹如在梦中。
我们笑声不止,欢呼歌唱。
列邦都说:
“耶和华为他们成就了伟大的事。”
耶和华实在为我们成就了伟大的事,
我们充满了喜乐。
耶和华啊,
求你恢复我们的繁荣,
就像干旱的南地重现溪流。
含泪撒种的必欢呼着收割。
含泪出去撒种的必欢呼着带回禾捆。
