New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Song of Ascents. When the Lord brought back the captivity 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 singing. Then they 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 are glad. 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Bring back our captivity, O Lord, As the streams in the South. 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy. 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 He who continually goes forth weeping, Bearing seed for sowing, Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, Bringing his sheaves with him. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
