Psalms 126:1-6

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • Zion’s joyful restoration

    • “Jehovah has done great things” (3)

    • From weeping to exultation (5, 6)

A Song of the Ascents. 126  When Jehovah gathered back the captives of Zion,+ We thought we were dreaming.   At that time our mouth was filled with laughter And our tongue with a joyful shout.+ At that time they said among the nations: “Jehovah has done great things for them.”+   Jehovah has done great things for us,+ And we are overjoyed.   Do gather back* our captives, O Jehovah, Like streams in the Negʹeb.*   Those sowing seed with tears Will reap with a joyful shout.   The one who does go out, though weeping, Carrying his bag of seed, Will surely return with a joyful shout,+ Carrying in his sheaves.+
