Psalm 126 ASV/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 When Jehovah brought back those that returned to Zion, We were like unto them that dream. 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing: Then said they among the nations, Jehovah hath done great things for them. 2 Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them."
3 Jehovah hath done great things for us, [Whereof] we are glad. 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Turn again our captivity, O Jehovah, As the streams in the South. 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing seed for sowing, Shall doubtless come again with joy, bringing his sheaves [with him]. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
