Psalm 137:2-9 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 There on the poplars1 we hung our harps,2 3 for there our captors3 asked us for songs, our tormentors demanded4 songs of joy; they said, "Sing us one of the songs of Zion!"5 4 How can we sing the songs of the LORD6 while in a foreign land? 5 If I forget you,7 O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget [its skill]. 6 May my tongue cling to the roof8 of my mouth if I do not remember9 you, if I do not consider Jerusalem10 my highest joy. 7 Remember, O LORD, what the Edomites11 did on the day Jerusalem fell.12 "Tear it down," they cried, "tear it down to its foundations!"13 8 O Daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction,14 happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us-- 9 he who seizes your infants and dashes them15 against the rocks.
