Psalm 126

Chapter Summary

Thanksgiving for deliverance from captivity

This was written after the return from Babylonian captivity, though it applies to any deliverance, physical or spiritual. In drought areas, farmers may literally go out crying, planting their last grain, which would feed their children for a day, praying that enough rain will come to make it grow and feed them for a year. What do you cry over, praying that it will succeed?

Day 252

O Lord, You know the burdens of my heart. You know the souls I pray for. Please grant them and me shouts of joy in the end.

Psalm 126:6

Psalm 126


126 When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.

The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.

Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the south.

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
