Psalm 126 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

A song for going up to the Temple.

126 It will be like a dream
    when the Lord comes back with the captives of Zion.[a]
We will laugh and sing happy songs!
    Then the other nations will say,
    “The Lord did a great thing for Zion!”
Yes, we will be happy
    because the Lord did a great thing for us.

So, Lord, bring back the good times,
    like a desert stream filled again with flowing water.
Then those who were sad when they planted
    will be happy when they gather the harvest!
Those who cried as they carried the seeds[b]
    will be happy when they bring in the crops!


  1. Psalm 126:1 when … Zion Or “when the Lord restores Zion.” See “Zion” in the Word List.
  2. Psalm 126:6 carried the seeds Or “carried all their possessions.”
