«A Song of Ascents
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.
