Psalms Chapter 137 (Index)

001  By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.

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

003  For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.

004  How shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land?

005  If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.

006  If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.

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

008  O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.

009  Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
