Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 When Yahweh restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like dreamers. 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
2 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]." 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 Yahweh has done great [things] for us; we are glad. 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Restore, O Yahweh, our fortunes like the streams in the Negeb. 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who sow with tears shall reap with rejoicing. 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 He who diligently goes [out] with weeping, carrying the seed bag, shall certainly come [in] with rejoicing, carrying his sheaves. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
