New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Our enemies took us away from Zion. But when the LORD brought us home, it seemed like a dream to us. 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
2 Our mouths were filled with laughter. Our tongues sang with joy. Then the people of other nations said, "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. And we are filled with joy. 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Lord, bless us with great success again, as rain makes streams flow in the Negev Desert. 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who cry as they plant their crops will sing with joy when they gather them in. 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 Those who go out sobbing as they carry seeds to plant will come back singing with joy. They will bring the new crop back with them. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
