Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Song of the Ascents. In Jehovah's turning back [to] the captivity of Zion, We have been as dreamers. 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
2 Then filled [with] laughter is our mouth, And our tongue [with] singing, Then do they say among nations, `Jehovah did great things with these.' 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 Jehovah did great things with us, We have been joyful. 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Turn again, O Jehovah, [to] our captivity, As streams in the south. 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 Those sowing in tears, with singing do reap, 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 Whoso goeth on and weepeth, Bearing the basket of seed, Surely cometh in with singing, bearing his sheaves! 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
