Psalms 137 (asv)

Psalms 137 (asv)

137:1By the rivers of Babylon,

There we sat down, yea, we wept,

When we remembered Zion.

137:2Upon the willows in the midst thereof We hanged up our harps.

137:3For there they that led us captive required of us songs,

And they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying,

Sing us one of the songs of Zion.

137:4How shall we sing Jehovah's song

In a foreign land?

137:5If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,

Let my right hand forget her skill.

137:6Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth,

If I remember thee not;

If I prefer not Jerusalem

Above my chief joy.

137:7Remember, O Jehovah, against the children of Edom

The day of Jerusalem;

Who said, Rase it, rase it,

Even to the foundation thereof.

137:8O daughter of Babylon, that art to be destroyed,

Happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee

As thou hast served us.

137:9Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones

Against the rock.
