Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 When the LORD changed Zion's circumstances for the better, it was like we had been dreaming. 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
2 Our mouths were suddenly filled with laughter; our tongues were filled with joyful shouts. It was even said, at that time, among the nations, "The LORD has 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 Yes, the LORD has done great things for us, and we are overjoyed. 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 LORD, change our circumstances for the better, like dry streams in the desert waste! 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 Let those who plant with tears reap the harvest with joyful shouts. 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 Let those who go out, crying and carrying their seed, come home with joyful shouts, carrying bales of grain! 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
