1 The song of degrees. When the Lord turned the captivity of Zion; we were made as comforted.
2Then our mouth was filled with joy; and our tongue with full out joying. Then they shall say among heathen men; The Lord magnified to do with them.
3The Lord magnified to do with us; we be made glad.
4Lord, turn thou our captivity; as a strand [or stream] in the south.
5They that sow in tears; shall reap in full out joying.
6They going, went, and wept; sending their seeds. But they coming, shall come with full out joying; bearing their handfuls.
