W S Prinsloo's synchronic textimmanent exegesis of Psalm 126 results in a two part division of the psalm (verses 1-4 and 5-6). In this contribution his results are questioned and a three-part division (a possibility Prinsloo did
not consider) is proposed, consisting of verses 1-3, 4 and 5-6. The result of the present investigation confirms (also from a synchronic textimmanent approach applied to the text) the perspective of past (verses 1-3), present
(verse 4) and future (verses 5-6) in the psalm.
