Matthew Henry's Psalms Chapter 126 Bible commentary...
Those returned out of captivity are to be thankful. (1-3) Those yet in captivity are encouraged. (4-6)
1-3 It is good to observe how God's deliverances of the church are for us, that we may rejoice in them. And how ought redemption from the wrath to come, from the power of sin and of Satan, to be valued! The sinner convinced of his guilt and danger, when by looking to a crucified Saviour he receives peace to his conscience, and power to break off his sins, often can scarcely believe that the prospect which opens to him is a reality.
4-6 The beginnings of mercies encourage us to pray for the completion of them. And while we are in this world there will be matter for prayer, even when we are most furnished with matter for praise. Suffering saints are often in tears; they share the calamities of human life, and commonly have a greater share than others. But they sow in tears; they do the duty of an afflicted state. Weeping must not hinder sowing; we must get good from times of affliction. And they that sow, in the tears of godly sorrow, to the Spirit, shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting; and that will be a joyful harvest indeed. Blessed are those that mourn, for they shall be for ever comforted. When we mourn for our sins, or suffer for Christ's sake, we are sowing in tears, to reap in joy. And remember that God is not mocked; for whatever a man soweth that shall he reap, #Ga 6:7-9|. Here, O disciple of Jesus, behold an emblem of thy present labour and future reward; the day is coming when thou shalt reap in joy, plentiful shall be thy harvest, and great shall be thy joy in the Lord.

This reminds me of the Bible verse "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away ", when GOD restores, delivers, saves us from our enemies, we would totally forget the evils that came from our pains, it would be a wonder to us, we would be filled with joy and gladness, all our little contributions despite lack and sorrow, the LORD would reward with bountifulness. That also explains the Bible story of the “women of Zarefat who gave her last to the prophet of GOD” and “the Widow who gave her last penny and our Lord Jesus Christ valued it greatly because she gave with all her heart regardless of penury.” Further, it highlights more another Bible verse “For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.” When we sow cheerfully no matter how small it is, we reap cheerfully. Even our enemies would have the cause to fear GOD, rejoicing, and singing with us to the glory of GOD when HE turns our situation around for good. Another part of the scripture says “that a broken and contrite heart GOD does not despise”, so if we’re able to sow in GOD’s kingdom no matter how little, HE would reward us and uplift our souls with joy”. Amen!

This brings another scripture to my mind,and that being,"Weeping endureth for the night, but joy comes in the morning". Even though we as Christians may shed tears,if we keep our faith in HIm, He will reward His Children with gladness. Great is Thy Faifthfullness!

It means never doubt the small voice, listen the one step ahead. Amen.

Precious seed to me, means anything that glorifies the name of God. Anybody that suffers 4 the sake of our Lord shall be rewarded and joy shall fill his heart.

When we are shut off from God nothing will work and life becomes series of miseries.After repentance and returning to Jesus. Our life completely change for good in a flash like crossing a thing line. We usually are overwhelmed. God is good. Amen

Mrs. Madge, I wanted to reflect on your question. I think when we say bearing precious seed, maybe it could be literal or figurative. I think the seed could be the Word of God and could even include hardships we face. Good can come from hardships, and our tears can be turned into joy. I think it could be either of these, and I want to thank you for the question. :):)
