Psalm 126 tells the story of the Israelites returning to Zion after seventy years of captivity in Babylon “When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy.” In contrast, we read in Psalm 137 the story of when they were being led away to captivity.
