1When Hashem brought the return of the captivity of Tziyon, we were like the cholemim (them that dream). 2Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and leshoneinu (our tongue) with rinnah (joyful song); then said they among the Goyim, Hashem hath done great things for them. 3Hashem hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad. 4Return our captivity and restore our fortunes, Hashem, like torrents in the Negev. 5They that sow in dimah (tears) shall reap in rinnah (joyful song). 6He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing meshek hazara (seed to be sown) shall doubtless come again with rinnah, bearing his alummot (sheaves [of harvest]).
