Psalm 137 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
1 By the rivers of Babylon we sat down; there we wept when we remembered Zion. 2 On the willows near by we hung up our harps. 3 Those who captured us told us to sing; they told us to entertain them: "Sing us a song about Zion." 4 How can we sing a song to the Lord in a foreign land? 5 May I never be able to play the harp again if I forget you, Jerusalem! 6 May I never be able to sing again if I do not remember you, if I do not think of you as my greatest joy! 7 Remember, Lord, what the Edomites did the day Jerusalem was captured. Remember how they kept saying, "Tear it down to the ground!" 8 Babylon, you will be destroyed. 1 Happy are those who pay you back for what you have done to us - 9 who take your babies and smash them against a rock.
