Chapter 137

1

 

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

 

 


2

 

 On the willows in the midst of it, We hung up our harps. 

 

 


3

 

 For there, those who led us captive asked us for songs. Those who tormented us demanded songs of joy: 'Sing us one of the songs of Zion!' 

 

 


4

 

 How can we sing Yahweh's song in a foreign land? 

 

 


5

 

 If I forget you, Jerusalem, Let my right hand forget its skill. 

 

 


6

 

 Let my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth, If I don't remember you; If I don't prefer Jerusalem above my chief joy. 

 

 


7

 

 Remember, Yahweh, against the children of Edom, The day of Jerusalem; Who said, 'Raze it! Raze it even to its foundation!' 

 

 


8

 

 Daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction, He will be happy who rewards you, As you have served us. 

 

 


9

 

 Happy shall he be, Who takes and dashes your little ones against the rock. Psalm 138 By David.
