An Experience of the Captivity.1 By the a rivers of Babylon,
There we sat down and b wept,
When we remembered Zion.
2 Upon the ▼
▼ Or poplars, d willows in the midst of it
We e hung our ▼
▼ Lit lyresharps.
3 For there our captors ▼
▼ Lit asked, h demanded of us ▼
▼ Lit words of songsongs,
And j our tormentors mirth, saying,
“Sing us one of the songs of Zion.”
4 How can we sing k the Lord’s song
In a foreign land?
5 If I l forget you, O Jerusalem,
May my right hand ▼
▼ I.e. become lameforget her skill.
6 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.
7 Remember, O Lord, against the sons of q Edom
The day of Jerusalem,
Who said, “Raze it, raze it
r To its very foundation.”
8 O daughter of Babylon, you ▼
▼ Or devastator, t devastated one,
How blessed will be the one who u repays you
▼ Lit your recompensethe recompense with which you have repaid us.
9 How blessed will be the one who seizes and w dashes your little ones
Against the rock.
