Psalms

Chapter 126

1

A song of ascents. 1 When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, then we thought we were dreaming.

2

Our mouths were filled with laughter; our tongues sang for joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The LORD had done great things for them.”

3

The LORD has done great things for us; Oh, how happy we were!

4

2 Restore again our fortunes, LORD, like the dry stream beds of the Negeb.

5

Those who sow in tears will reap with cries of joy.

6

Those who go forth weeping, carrying sacks of seed, Will return with cries of joy, carrying their bundled sheaves.

1 [Psalm 126] A lament probably sung shortly after Israel’s return from exile. The people rejoice that they are in Zion ( Psalm 126:1-3) but mere presence in the holy city is not enough; they must pray for the prosperity and the fertility of the land ( Psalm 126:4). The last verses are probably an oracle of promise: the painful work of sowing will be crowned with life ( Psalm 126:5-6).

2 [4] Like the dry stream beds of the Negeb: the psalmist prays for rain in such abundance that the dry riverbeds will run.
