Psalm 126 World English Bible (WEB)

A Song of Ascents.

126 When Yahweh brought back those who returned to Zion,
    we were like those who dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
    and our tongue with singing.
Then they said among the nations,
    “Yahweh has done great things for them.”
Yahweh has done great things for us,
    and we are glad.
Restore our fortunes again, Yahweh,
    like the streams in the Negev.
Those who sow in tears will reap in joy.
    He who goes out weeping, carrying seed for sowing,
    will certainly come again with joy, carrying his sheaves.

Psalm 126 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Thanksgiving for Return from Captivity.

A Song of Ascents.

126 When the Lord brought back [a]the captive ones of Zion,
We were like those who dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter
And our tongue with joyful shouting;
Then they said among the nations,
“The Lord has done great things for them.”
The Lord has done great things for us;
We are glad.

Restore our captivity, O Lord,
As the [b]streams in the [c]South.
Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting.
He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed,
Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.
