The Passion Translation
7 And Lord, may you never forget
what the sons of Edom did to us, saying,
“Let’s raze the city of Jerusalem and burn it to the ground!”[a]
8 Listen, O Babylon, you evil destroyer!
The one who destroys you will be rewarded above all others.
You will be repaid for what you’ve done to us.
9 Great honor will come to those who destroy you and your future,
by smashing your infants against the rubble of your own destruction.
- Psalm 137:7 The Hebrew text reads “Strip her [Jerusalem] naked!’ ”

7 Remember, Lord, what the Edomites(A) did
on the day Jerusalem fell.(B)
“Tear it down,” they cried,
“tear it down to its foundations!”(C)
8 Daughter Babylon, doomed to destruction,(D)
happy is the one who repays you
according to what you have done to us.
9 Happy is the one who seizes your infants
and dashes them(E) against the rocks.
