137 By the rivers* of Babylon*+—there we sat down.+ We also wept when we remembered Zion.+ 2 Upon the poplar+ trees in the midst of her* We hung our harps.+ 3 For there those holding us captive asked us for the words of a song,+ And those mocking* us—for rejoicing:+ “SING for us one of the songs of Zion.”+ 4 How can we sing the song of Jehovah+ Upon foreign ground?*+ 5 If I should forget you, O Jerusalem,+ Let my right hand be forgetful. 6 Let my tongue stick to my palate,+ If I were not to remember you,+ If I were not to make Jerusalem ascend Above my chief cause for rejoicing.+ 7 Remember,+ O Jehovah, regarding the sons of Eʹdom+ the day of Jerusalem,+ Who were saying: “Lay [it] bare! Lay [it] bare to the foundation within it!”+ 8 O daughter of Babylon, who are to be despoiled,+ Happy will he be that rewards you+ With your own treatment with which you treated us.+ 9 Happy will he be that grabs ahold and does dash to pieces+ Your children against the crag.
