|<< Psalm 126 >>|
Wesley's Notes on the Bible
1 When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
126:1 Turned - Brought the captive Israelites out of Babylon into their own land. Dream - We were so surprized and astonished.
2 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.
3 The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.
4 Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.
126:4 Turn - As thou hast brought us home, bring also the rest of our brethren. As - As thou art pleased sometimes to send floods of water into dry and barren grounds, such as the southern parts of Canaan were.
5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
