1
{A Song of degrees.}
When Jehovah turned the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
2
Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with rejoicing: then said they among the nations, Jehovah hath done great things for them.
3
Jehovah hath done great things for us;
[and] we are joyful.
4
Turn our captivity, O Jehovah, as the streams in the south.
5
They that sow in tears shall reap with rejoicing:
6
He goeth forth and weepeth, bearing seed for scattering;
he cometh again with rejoicing, bearing his sheaves.
