Psalms 137

An Experience of the Captivity.

By the a rivers of Babylon,
There we sat down and b wept,
When we remembered Zion.
Upon the
Or poplars
d willows in the midst of it
We e hung our
Lit lyres
For there our captors
Lit asked
h demanded of us
Lit words of song
And j our tormentors mirth, saying,
Sing us one of the songs of Zion.”

How can we sing k the  Lord’s song
In a foreign land?
If I l forget you, O Jerusalem,
May my right hand
I.e. become lame
forget her skill.
May my n tongue cling to the roof of my mouth
If I do not remember you,
If I do not
Lit cause to ascend
p exalt Jerusalem
Above my chief joy.

Remember, O  Lord, against the sons of q Edom
The day of Jerusalem,
Who said, “Raze it, raze it
r To its very foundation.”
O daughter of Babylon, you
Or devastator
t devastated one,
How blessed will be the one who u repays you
Lit your recompense
the recompense with which you have repaid us.
How blessed will be the one who seizes and w dashes your little ones
Against the rock.
