Chapter 137

1

 

 By the rivers of Babylon, There we sat down, yea, we wept, When we remembered Zion. 

 

 


2

 

 Upon the willows in the midst thereof We hanged up our harps. 

 

 


3

 

 For there they that led us captive required of us songs, And they that wasted us [required of us] mirth, [saying], Sing us one of the songs of Zion. 

 

 


4

 

 How shall we sing Jehovah's song In a foreign land? 

 

 


5

 

 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, Let my right hand forget [her skill]. 

 

 


6

 

 Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, If I remember thee not; If I prefer not Jerusalem Above my chief joy. 

 

 


7

 

 Remember, O Jehovah, against the children of Edom The day of Jerusalem; Who said, Rase it, rase it, Even to the foundation thereof. 

 

 


8

 

 O daughter of Babylon, that art to be destroyed, Happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee As thou hast served us. 

 

 


9

 

 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones Against the rock. Psalm 138 A [Psalm] of David.
