New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A song for the ascent to Jerusalem. When the LORD restored his exiles to Jerusalem, it was like a dream! 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
2 We were filled with laughter, and we sang for joy. And the other nations said, "What amazing things the LORD has done 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 amazing things for us! What joy! 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Restore our fortunes, LORD, as streams renew the desert. 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy. 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
