Psalms 137:1-9

137  By the rivers of Babylon, There we sat down, yea, we wept, When we remembered Zion. 2  Upon the willows in the midst thereof We hanged up our harps. 3  For 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. 4  How shall we sing Jehovah’s song In a foreign land? 5  If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, Let my right hand forget her skill. 6  Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, If I remember thee not; If I prefer not Jerusalem Above my chief joy. 7  Remember, O Jehovah, against the children of Edom The day of Jerusalem; Who said, Rase it, rase it, Even to the foundation thereof. 8  O daughter of Babylon, that art to be destroyed, Happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee As thou hast served us. 9  Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones Against the rock.
