Psalm 126
New American Standard Bible►► 

Thanksgiving for Return from Captivity.

A Song of Ascents.

1When the LORD brought back [a]the captives of Zion,

We were like those who dream.

2Then 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.”

3The LORD has done great things for us;

We are joyful.

4Restore our fortunes, LORD,

As the [b]streams in the [c]South.

5Those who sow in tears shall harvest with joyful shouting.

6One who goes here and there weeping, carrying his bag of seed,

Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

[a] 1 Or those who returned to
[b] 4 Lit stream-beds
[c] 4 Heb Negev
