Psalm 137
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1BY the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down. yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.

2We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.

3For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and our captors said to us, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.

4How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a strange land?

5If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget me.

6If I do not remember you, let my tongue cleave to my palate, if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.

7Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem, who said, Raze it, raze it, even to the foundation thereof.

8O daughter of Babylon, taker of spoils, blessed shall he be who rewards you as you have served us.

9Blessed shall he be who takes and dashes your little ones against the stones.
