Chapter 137

1


 

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

 

 


2


 

  We hung our harps upon the willows in the midst of it.  

 

 


3


 

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

 

 


4


 

  How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a foreign land?  

 

 


5


 

  If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her skill.  

 

 


6


 

  If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.  

 

 


7


 

  Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Raze it, raze it, even to its foundation.  

 

 


8


 

  O daughter of Babylon, who 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 stones.
