Psalm 126 RHE/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 (125-1) <A gradual canticle.> When the Lord brought back the captivity of Sion, we became like men comforted. 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
2 (125-2) Then was our mouth filled with gladness; and our tongue with joy. Then shall they say among the Gentiles: The Lord hath 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 (125-3) The Lord hath done great things for us: we are become joyful. 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 (125-4) Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as a stream in the south. 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 (125-5) They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 (125-6) Going they went and wept, casting their seeds. (125-7) But coming they shall come with joyfulness, carrying their sheaves. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
