137 By the rivers of Babylon, There we sat down and wept, When we remembered Zion. 2 Upon the [a]willows in the midst of it We hung our [b]harps. 3 For there our captors [c]demanded of us [d]songs, And our tormentors mirth, saying, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion.”
4 How can we sing the Lord’s song In a foreign land? 5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem, May my right hand [e]forget her skill. 6 May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth If I do not remember you, If I do not [f]exalt Jerusalem Above my chief joy.
7 Remember, O Lord, against the sons of Edom The day of Jerusalem, Who said, “Raze it, raze it To its very foundation.” 8 O daughter of Babylon, you [g]devastated one, How blessed will be the one who repays you With [h]the recompense with which you have repaid us. 9 How blessed will be the one who seizes and dashes your little ones Against the rock.
