Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 When the Lord brought us back to Jerusalem, it was like a dream! 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
2 How we laughed, how we sang for joy! Then the other nations said about us, "The Lord did 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 Indeed he did great things for us; how happy we were! 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Lord, make us prosperous again, just as the rain brings water back to dry riverbeds. 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 Let those who wept as they planted their crops, gather the harvest with joy! 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 Those who wept as they went out carrying the seed will come back singing for joy, as they bring in the harvest. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
