Psalm 126 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)

A Song of degrees.

126 ¶ When the LORD shall turn again the captivity of Zion, we shall be like those that dream.

Then our mouth shall be filled with laughter and our tongue with singing; then they shall say among the Gentiles, The LORD has done great things with them.

The LORD has done great things with us, of which we shall be glad.

¶ Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.

Those that sow with tears shall reap with joy.

He that goes forth and weeps, bearing the precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalm 126 New International Version (NIV)

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.
