Chapter 136

1

 

 Upon the rivers of Babylon, there we sat and wept: when we remembered Sion: 

 

 


2

 

 On the willows in the midst thereof we hung up our instruments. 

 

 


3

 

 For there they that led us into captivity required of us the words of songs. And they that carried us away, said: Sing ye to us a hymn of the songs of Sion. 

 

 


4

 

 How shall we sing the song of the Lord in a strange land? 

 

 


5

 

 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand be forgotten. 

 

 


6

 

 Let my tongue cleave to my jaws, if I do not remember thee: If I make not Jerusalem the beginning of my joy. 

 

 


7

 

 Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom, in the day of Jerusalem: Who say: Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof. 

 

 


8

 

 O daughter of Babylon, miserable: blessed shall he be who shall repay thee thy payment which thou hast paid us. 

 

 


9

 

 Blessed be he that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock.
