Psalmi 137 Biblia Sacra Vulgata (VULGATE)

137 ipsi David confitebor tibi Domine in toto corde meo quoniam audisti verba oris mei in conspectu angelorum psallam tibi

adorabo ad templum sanctum tuum et confitebor nomini tuo super misericordia tua et veritate tua quoniam magnificasti super omne nomen sanctum tuum

in quacumque die invocavero te exaudi me multiplicabis me in anima mea virtute

confiteantur tibi Domine omnes reges terrae quia audierunt omnia verba oris tui

et cantent in viis Domini quoniam magna gloria Domini

quoniam excelsus Dominus et humilia respicit et alta a longe cognoscit

si ambulavero in medio tribulationis vivificabis me super iram inimicorum meorum extendisti manum tuam et salvum me fecit dextera tua

Dominus retribuet propter me Domine misericordia tua in saeculum opera manuum tuarum ne dispicias

Psalm 137 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 137

By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept
    when we remembered Zion.
There on the poplars
    we hung our harps,
for there our captors asked us for songs,
    our tormentors demanded songs of joy;
    they said, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”

How can we sing the songs of the Lord
    while in a foreign land?
If I forget you, Jerusalem,
    may my right hand forget its skill.
May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth
    if I do not remember you,
if I do not consider Jerusalem
    my highest joy.

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