Psalm 126

Those Who Sow in Tears Shall Reap with Joy

A Song of Ascents.

When Yahweh returned the captive ones of Zion,
We were like those who dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter
And our tongue with shouts of joy;
Then they said among the nations,
“Yahweh has done great things for them.”
Yahweh has done great things for us;
We are glad.

Restore our captivity, O Yahweh,
As the streams in the Negev.
Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy.
He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed,
Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, carrying his sheaves with him.
