I can't help but think the context of this passage is similar to Isaiah 61.

Isa 61:1; The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, Because the LORD has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners;
Isa 61:2; To proclaim the favorable year of the LORD And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn,
Isa 61:3; To grant those who mourn in Zion, Giving them a garland instead of ashes, The oil of gladness instead of mourning, The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.
Isa 61:4; Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins, They will raise up the former devastations; And they will repair the ruined cities, The desolations of many generations.
Isa 61:5; Strangers will stand and pasture your flocks, And foreigners will be your farmers and your vinedressers.
Isa 61:6; But you will be called the priests of the LORD; You will be spoken of as ministers of our God. You will eat the wealth of nations, And in their riches you will boast.
Isa 61:7; Instead of your shame you will have a double portion, And instead of humiliation they will shout for joy over their portion. Therefore they will possess a double portion in their land, Everlasting joy will be theirs.
Isa 61:8; For I, the LORD, love justice, I hate robbery in the burnt offering; And I will faithfully give them their recompense And make an everlasting covenant with them.

We may have to work hard... we may be sorrowful... there may be pain in this life... we may be broken, tired, persecuted, poor, cold and hungry in this life...
But our reward is coming. There will eventually be comfort and joy.
it means times are gonna be hard, ur gonna face some trials and be persecuted like jesus said, but he who endures 2 the end will be saved, matt 10:22 call on Christ and he will be with you threw the mist of the storm!!

Thank you for the replies thus far,

what does 'sow in tears' mean? And more particularly, is that any tears we might cry for whatever reason or is there something more specific this is about?

Over the years, i have remembered this verse and also heard others repeat it but sometimes it has been more of a generalization, as a form of 'comfort' when someone is sad about something, sad to tears.

Bless you ....><>
