Psalm 126

MSG 1 It seemed like a dream, too good to be true, when God returned Zion's exiles. NIV 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed. MSG 2 We laughed, we sang, we couldn't believe our good fortune. We were the talk of the nations - "God was wonderful to them!" NIV 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." MSG 3 God was wonderful to us; we are one happy people. NIV 3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. MSG 4 And now, God, do it again - bring rains to our drought-stricken lives NIV 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev. MSG 5 So those who planted their crops in despair will shout hurrahs at the harvest, NIV 5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. MSG 6 So those who went off with heavy hearts will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing. NIV 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
