1aWhen Yahweh restored the fortunesb of Zion,c we were like dreamers.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with rejoicing. Then they said among the nations, "Yahweh has done great [things] for these [people]."
Yahweh has done great [things] for us; we are glad.
Restore, O Yahweh, our fortunesd like the streams in the Negeb.e5
Those who sow with tears shall reap with rejoicing.
He who diligently goes [out] with weeping, carrying the seed bag, shall certainly come [in] with rejoicing, carrying his sheaves.
