English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
1 When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. 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 shouts of joy; then 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; we are glad. 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negeb! 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy! 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 He who goes out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
