Psalm 137 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
Lament over the Destruction of Jerusalem
1 By the rivers of Babylon—
4 How could we sing the Lord’s song
7 Remember, O Lord, against the Edomites
Jeremiah 29:4-7 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
4 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have sent into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: 5 Build houses and live in them; plant gardens and eat what they produce. 6 Take wives and have sons and daughters; take wives for your sons, and give your daughters in marriage, that they may bear sons and daughters; multiply there, and do not decrease. 7 But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.
