Psalms



The fifth book of Psalms, song 137, King James Version

Psalm 137


   1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
   2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
   3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
   4 How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a strange land?
   5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.
   6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
   7 Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.
   8 O daughter of Babylon, who 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 stones.
