Psalm 126 (WEBP)

[1] When Yahweh brought back those who returned to Zion, we were like those who dream.
[2] Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, “Yahweh has done great things for them.”
[3] Yahweh has done great things for us, and we are glad.
[4] Restore our fortunes again, Yahweh, like the streams in the Negev.
[5] Those who sow in tears will reap in joy.
[6] He who goes out weeping, carrying seed for sowing, will certainly come again with joy, carrying his sheaves.

[4] Turn again, O Jehovah, to our captivity, As streams in the south.
[5] Those sowing in tears, with singing do reap,
[6] Whoso goeth on and weepeth, Bearing the basket of seed, Surely cometh in with singing, bearing his sheaves!
