Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 126:5-6.


Psalms 126:6

_ _ He that goeth forth — literally, better, “He goes — he comes, he comes,” etc. The repetition implies there is no end of weeping here, as there shall be no end of joy hereafter (Isaiah 35:10).

_ _ precious seed — rather, seed to be drawn from the seed box for sowing; literally, “seed-draught.” Compare on this Psalm, Jeremiah 31:9, etc.
