Re: South Korea, lackey of the yankee imperialist bastard

it's from the bible, old testament, one of the best-known psalms.
The punctuation is pretty much straight from the bible.
Meaning
This is a song of joy and of thanks to God. The thanks is reflected in its third verse, "The LORD has done great things for us". But still more exuberant than expressions of thanks is the joyousness of the author. The author shows the people as gleeful to return to Zion after 2 generations of detention by the Babylonians, as is expressed in verse 1 and 2: "When the Lord restored the captives of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with joyful singing"

Vice President Pence also received a copy
Vice President Mike Pence @VP
It was an amazing moment I’ll never forget... when 3 Americans stepped onto the tarmac at @JBA_NAFW & gave me a signed personal note with Psalm 126 on the back. “When the Lord brought back the captives to Zion...” To these men of faith & courage - God bless you & welcome home!i

Ah, CXXVI
Actually CXXVI has 6 parts and is a song from Shir Hammaloth.It's about being freed from the Babylonian prison.
Punctiuation to one side; the use of the word 'nations' is heidenen (heathens) in my official late 19th century Dutch version. Has copy editing being going on?

He who goes out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.
Psalm CXXVI:6

Psalm 126:1-3 King James Version (KJV)
126 When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.
3 The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.

you've got to bear in mind that the 3 kims are korean-american evangelicals

The text on the card seems to be from the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
I used a website where you can see a bible verse as it appears in a whole bunch of different translations, and Amplified Bible, Classic Edition is closest

I'm probably a bit more old-fashioned. I like reading Psalms in Dutch. The modern approach is a bridge too far for me. They even got rid of the Latin Mass. 
And I hate the use of guitars in church.

My mum played the Willis organ here for 50 years. What a sound.

it seems that kim jong-un likes trump, likes pompeo, but dislikes john bolton.
Specter of Qaddafi Haunts North Korea Talks
(is that really how we spell gaddafy these days? 112 ways to spell gaddafy)
gaddafy did a deal with bush II whereby gaddafy gave up his nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
When bush II left office, obama and hillary helped overthrow gaddafy which ended with gaddafy being "sodomized with a bayonet" which I assume is what killed him
