137:1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yes, we wept,
when we remembered Zion.
137:2 We hung our harps upon the willows in the midst of it.
137:3 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.
137:4 How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a foreign land?
137:5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget
137:6 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.
137:7 Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of
Jerusalem; who said, Raze [it], raze [it], [even] to its
137:8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy
[shall he be], that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.
137:9 Happy [shall he be], that taketh and dasheth thy little
ones against the stones.
