Psalms 137 (asv)
137:1By the rivers of Babylon,
There we sat down, yea, we wept,
When we remembered Zion.
137:2Upon the willows in the midst thereof We hanged up our harps.
137:3For there they that led us captive required of us songs,
And they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying,
Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
137:4How shall we sing Jehovah's song
In a foreign land?
137:5If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
137:6Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth,
If I remember thee not;
If I prefer not Jerusalem
Above my chief joy.
Who said, Rase it, rase it,
Even to the foundation thereof.
137:8O daughter of Babylon, that art to be destroyed,
Happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee
As thou hast served us.
137:9Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones
Against the rock.
