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.
