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.
