The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 {A Song of degrees.} When Jehovah turned 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 rejoicing: then said they among the nations, Jehovah 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 Jehovah hath done great things for us; [and] we are joyful. 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Turn our captivity, O Jehovah, 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 with rejoicing: 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 He goeth forth and weepeth, bearing seed for scattering; he cometh again with rejoicing, bearing his sheaves. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
