Bible Quote 126:1 When the Lord brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
126:2 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."
126:3 The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
126:4 Restore our fortunes, O Lord , like streams in the Negev.
126:5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.

126:6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
Bible Quote 4:31 Meanwhile his disciples urged him, "Rabbi, eat something."
4:32 But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you know nothing about."
4:33 Then his disciples said to each other, "Could someone have brought him food?"
4:34 "My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.
4:35 Do you not say, 'Four months more and then the harvest'? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.

4:36 Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.
4:37 Thus the saying 'One sows and another reaps' is true.
4:38 I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor."
4:39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman's testimony, "He told me everything I ever did."
4:40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days.

4:41 And because of his words many more became believers.
4:42 They said to the woman, "We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world."
