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.
