Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 The song of degrees. When the Lord turned the captivity of Zion; we were made as comforted. (When the Lord returned the captives to Zion/When the Lord returned prosperity to Zion; we were made like in a dream.) 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
2 Then our mouth was filled with joy; and our tongue with full out joying. Then they shall say among heathen men; The Lord magnified to do with them. (Then our mouths were filled with joy; and ours tongues with rejoicing. And the heathen said to each other, 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 The Lord magnified to do with us; we be made glad. (Yea, the Lord did great things for us; and we were glad.) 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Lord, turn thou (again) our captivity; as a strand in the south. (Lord, return thou the captives/return thou our prosperity; like the streams return to the south.) 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.
5 They that sow in tears; shall reap in full out joying. (Then they who sowed in tears; shall reap with rejoicing.) 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 They going, went, and wept; sending their seeds. But they coming, shall come with full out joying; bearing their handfuls (They going, went, and wept; sending out their seeds. But when they shall return, they shall come back rejoicing; carrying their harvest.) 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
