Psalms - Chapter 137 | New King James Version

  • 1. By the rivers of Babylon, There we sat down, yea, we wept When we remembered Zion.
  • 2. We hung our harps Upon the willows in the midst of it.
  • 3. For there those who carried us away captive asked of us a song, And those who plundered us requested mirth, Saying, "Sing us one of the songs of Zion!"
  • 4. How shall we sing the Lord's song In a foreign land?
  • 5. If I forget you, O Jerusalem, Let my right hand forget its skill!
  • 6. If I do not remember you, Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth-- If I do not 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, who are to be destroyed, Happy the one who repays you as you have served us!
  • 9. Happy the one who takes and dashes Your little ones against the rock!
