Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 A song of ascents: When ADONAI restored Tziyon's fortunes, we thought we were dreaming. 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
2 Our mouths were full of laughter, and our tongues shouted for joy. Among the nations it was said, "ADONAI 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 ADONAI did do great things with us; and we are overjoyed. 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Return our people from exile, ADONAI, as streams fill vadis in the Negev. 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who sow in tears will reap with cries of joy. 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 He who goes out weeping as he carries his sack of seed will come home with cries of joy as he carries his sheaves of grain. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
