Psalm 126

The reading from this morning's Celtic Daily Prayer was from Psalm 126. This psalm was most likely written sometime after King Cyrus of Persia allowed the Jewish people to return to their homes after being in exile for seventy years (see Ezra 1)

When the Lord brought back the captives to Zion,
we were like men who dreamed.
Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
"The Lord has done great things for them."
The Lord has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.
Psalm 126:1-3
