Psalm 126 A Song of [E]Ascents. 126 1WHEN THE Lord brought back the captives [who returned] to Zion, we were like those who dream [it seemed so unreal]. 2Then were our mouths filled with laughter, and our tongues with singing. Then they said among the nations, The Lord has done great things for them. 3The Lord has done great things for us! We are glad! 4Turn to freedom our captivity and restore our fortunes, O Lord, as the streams in the South (the Negeb) [are restored by the torrents]. 5They who sow in tears shall reap in joy and singing. 6He who goes forth bearing seed and weeping [at needing his precious supply of grain for sowing] shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
