New Revised Standard (NRS) 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 it was 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, and we rejoiced. 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Restore our fortunes, O Lord, like the watercourses in the Negeb. 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy. 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 Those who go out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, carrying their sheaves. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
