Psalms 137
New Living Translation
137Beside the rivers of Babylon, we sat and wept as we thought of Jerusalem.H5104H894H3427H1058H2142H6726 2We put away our harps, hanging them on the branches of poplar trees.H8518H3658H6155H8432 3For our captors demanded a song from us. Our tormentors insisted on a joyful hymn. “Sing us one of those songs of Jerusalem!”H7617H7592H1697H7892H8437H8057H7891H7892H6726 4But how can we sing the songs of the Lord while in a pagan land?H7891H3068H7892H5236H127 5If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget how to play the harp.H7911H3389H3225H7911 6May my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth if I fail to remember you, if I don’t make Jerusalem my greatest joy.H2142H3956H1692H2441H5927H3389H7218H8057 7O Lord, remember what the Edomites did on the day the armies of Babylon captured Jerusalem. “Destroy it!” they yelled. “Level it to the ground!”H2142H3068H1121H123H3117H3389H559H6168H6168H3247 8O Babylon, you will be destroyed. Happy is the one who pays you back for what you have done to us.H1323H894H7703H835H7999H1580H1576 9Happy is the one who takes your babies and smashes them against the rocks!H835H270H5310H5768H5553
