Psalms Chapter 137 - New International Version

1. Psalm 137

1. By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept when we remembered Zion.

2. There on the poplars we hung our harps,

3. for there our captors asked us for songs, our tormentors demanded songs of joy; they said, "Sing us one of the songs of Zion!"

4. How can we sing the songs of the LORD while in a foreign land?

5. If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget [its skill].

6. May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth if I do not remember you, if I do not consider Jerusalem my highest joy.

7. Remember, O LORD, what the Edomites did on the day Jerusalem fell. "Tear it down," they cried, "tear it down to its foundations!"

8. O Daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction, happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us--

9. he who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.
