Psalm 126 BBE/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 When the Lord made a change in Zion's fate, we were like men in a dream. 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
2 Then our mouths were full of laughing, and our tongues gave a glad cry; they said 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 The Lord has done great things for us; because of which we are glad. 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Let our fate be changed, O Lord, like the streams in the South. 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who put in seed with weeping will get in the grain with cries of joy. 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 Though a man may go out weeping, taking his vessel of seed with him; he will come again in joy, with the corded stems of grain in his arms. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
