King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like 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 heathen, The LORD 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 The LORD 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 LORD, 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 precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, 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.
