Psalms 1371 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down.
Yes, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
2 On the willows in its midst,
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 Jehovah'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 do not remember you;
if I do not prefer Jerusalem above my chief joy.
7 Remember, Jehovah, 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.
