[ Illustration: Today's painting illustrates the streams in the south (Negev) mentioned in verse 4. The fantasy of abundant waters presented in today's painting is similar to the abundance of the waters in reality. ]
[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]
Explanation: In Psalm 126, the Psalmist and Israel rejoice over the end of the Babylonian Captivity.
Today's Psalm has a synonymous parallelism (ideas in the Psalm match one another, sometimes in identical or nearly identical words).
Past Restoration. The Psalmist remembers the rejoicing which Israel had when they were released from the Babylonian Captivity. They were like those who dream (1).
Past Joy. They laughed and sang; and the heathen admitted that the LORD had done great things for them. Therefore they were glad (2-3).
Present Restoration. And the Psalmist asked that the LORD would turn their captivity again like streams in the south -- i.e., the wilderness known as the Negev (4).
Present Joy. The lesson was that those who sow in tears will reap in joy; they will go out with precious seen and will come again bringing the sheaves from a harvest of joy (5-6).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

Psalm Detailed Outline
(SONGS FOR COVENANT WORSHIP)
Deliverance from Sinners and from Sin
Nearly all the Psalms (except Psalm 90) were written during the 612 year period
from the time of David around 1016 B. C. to the close of the Canon in about 404 B. C.
Psalm 90, according to its superscription, was written by Moses; this may have been around 1406 B. C.

God Praised & Thanked for His Goodness
When the LORD ended the Babylonian captivity we rejoiced greatly.
Map 1: Bible Nations | Map 2: Empire of David and Solomon Map 3: Kingdoms of Judah and Israel | Post Exile Chronology.
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.
5 They that sow in tears
shall reap in joy.
6 He that goeth forth [The one going goes] and weepeth,
bearing precious seed,
shall doubtless come again [coming he shall come] with rejoicing,
bringing his sheaves with him.
* NOTE: On Opening and Closing Comments in the Psalms.
[Some commentators take the Psalm in Habakkuk 3 to be a standard model for the Psalms.
Habakkuk's Psalm begins with the name of the composer (Habakkuk) and a musical notation ("upon Shigionoth").
It closes with a dedication or a "send to" notice ("To the chief singer on my stringed instruments").
I have arranged similar material, where it is found in the Psalter, in accord with the model in Habakkuk.]
