Psalm 126

Zion’s Captives Restored

A song of ascents.

1When the LORD restored the captives of Zion, a 

we were like dreamers. b 

2 Then our mouths were filled with laughter,

our tongues with shouts 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;

we are filled with joy.

4 Restore our captives, c O LORD,

like streams in the Negev.

5 Those who sow in tears

will reap with shouts of joy.

6 He who goes out weeping,

bearing a trail of seed,

will surely return with shouts of joy,

carrying sheaves of grain.



1 a Or brought back the captives to Zion ; or restored the fortunes of Zion
1 b Or like those restored to health
4 c Or Restore our fortunes
