Psalm 126 Wednesday Evening 3
When Yahweh restored the fortunes of Zion, * we became like the sands of the sea.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter, * and our tongue with shouts of joy.
Then even the nations said: * “Yahweh showed his greatness * by working with them.”
Yahweh showed his greatness * by working with us; * we became happy.
Yahweh restored our fortunes * like torrents in the Negeb.
Those who sowed in tears * have reaped with shouts of joy.
Though weeping he went forth, * carrying his seed-bag,
he came home with shouts of joy, * carrying his bundles of grain.
