Psalms - Chapter 126

The King James Version Basic English Version (BBE)

1 When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

1 <A Song of the going up.> When the Lord made a change in Zion's fate, we were like men in a dream.

2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.

2 Then our mouths were full of laughing, and our tongues gave a glad cry; they said among the nations, The Lord has done great things for them.

3 The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.

3 The Lord has done great things for us; because of which we are glad.

4 Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.

4 Let our fate be changed, O Lord, like the streams in the South.

5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

5 Those who put in seed with weeping will get in the grain with cries of joy.

6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

6 Though a man may go out weeping, taking his vessel of seed with him; he will come again in joy, with the corded stems of grain in his arms.
