An Experience of the Captivity.

1 By the 1rivers of Babylon, There we sat down and 2wept, When we remembered Zion. 2 Upon the a3willows in the midst of it We 4hung our bharps. 3 For there our captors c5demanded of us dsongs, And 6our tormentors mirth, saying, "Sing us one of the songs of Zion." 4 How can we sing 7the LORD'S song In a foreign land? 5 If I 8forget you, O Jerusalem, May my right hand eforget her skill. 6 May my 9tongue cling to the roof of my mouth If I do not remember you, If I do not f10exalt Jerusalem Above my chief joy. 7 Remember, O LORD, against the sons of 11Edom The day of Jerusalem, Who said, "Raze it, raze it 12To its very foundation." 8 O daughter of Babylon, you g13devastated one, How blessed will be the one who 14repays you With hthe recompense with which you have repaid us. 9 How blessed will be the one who seizes and 15dashes your little ones Against the rock.
