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.

Psalm 126 (KJVS)

[1] «A Song H7892 of degrees H4609.» When the LORD H3068 turned again H7725 (8800) the captivity H7870 of Zion H6726, we were like them that dream H2492 (8802).
[2] Then was our mouth H6310 filled H4390 (8735) with laughter H7814, and our tongue H3956 with singing H7440: then said H559 (8799) they among the heathen H1471, The LORD H3068 hath done H6213 (8800) great things H1431 (8689) for them.
[3] The LORD H3068 hath done H6213 (8800) great things H1431 (8689) for us; [whereof] we are glad H8056.
[4] Turn again H7725 (8798) our captivity H7622 (8675) H7622, O LORD H3068, as the streams H650 in the south H5045.
[5] They that sow H2232 (8802) in tears H1832 shall reap H7114 (8799) in joy H7440.
[6] He that goeth H3212 (8799) forth H1980 (8800) and weepeth H1058 (8800), bearing H5375 (8802) precious H4901 seed H2233, shall doubtless H935 (8800) come H935 (8799) again with rejoicing H7440, bringing H5375 (8802) his sheaves H485 [with him].

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 126 (YLT)

[1] In Jehovah’s turning back to the captivity of Zion, We have been as dreamers.
[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.’
[3] Jehovah did great things with us, We have been joyful.
[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!
