Psalm 137:1-6

RHE 1 (136-1) Upon the rivers of Babylon, there we sat and wept: when we remembered Sion: NIV 1 By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept when we remembered Zion. RHE 2 (136-2) On the willows in the midst thereof we hung up our instruments. NIV 2 There on the poplars we hung our harps, RHE 3 (136-3) For there they that led us into captivity required of us the words of songs. And they that carried us away, said: Sing ye to us a hymn of the songs of Sion. NIV 3 for there our captors asked us for songs, our tormentors demanded songs of joy; they said, "Sing us one of the songs of Zion!" RHE 4 (136-4) How shall we sing the song of the Lord in a strange land? NIV 4 How can we sing the songs of the LORD while in a foreign land? RHE 5 (136-5) If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand be forgotten. NIV 5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget [its skill]. RHE 6 (136-6) Let my tongue cleave to my jaws, if I do not remember thee: If I make not Jerusalem the beginning of my joy. NIV 6 May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth if I do not remember you, if I do not consider Jerusalem my highest joy.
