Chapter 137

1

 

 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down; yea, we wept when we remembered Zion. 

 

 


2

 

 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof. 

 

 


3

 

 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that made us wail [required] mirth, [saying,] Sing us [one] of the songs of Zion. 

 

 


4

 

 How should we sing a song of Jehovah's upon a foreign soil? 

 

 


5

 

 If I forget thee, Jerusalem, let my right hand forget [its skill]; 

 

 


6

 

 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to my palate: if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy. 

 

 


7

 

 Remember, O Jehovah, against the sons of Edom, the day of Jerusalem; who said, Lay [it] bare, Lay [it] bare, down to its foundation! 

 

 


8

 

 Daughter of Babylon, who art to be laid waste, happy he that rendereth unto thee that which thou hast meted out to us. 

 

 


9

 

 Happy he that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the rock.
