GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, it was as if we were dreaming. 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
2 Then our mouths were filled with laughter and our tongues with joyful songs. Then the nations said, "The LORD has done spectacular 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 spectacular things for us. We are overjoyed. 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, as you restore streams [to dry riverbeds] in the Negev. 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who cry while they plant will joyfully sing while they harvest. 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 The person who goes out weeping, carrying his bag of seed, will come home singing, carrying his bundles of grain. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
