Psalms 137:1-9

By the rivers
<05104>
of Babylon
<0894>_,
there we sat down
<03427> (8804)_,
yea, we wept
<01058> (8804)_,
when we remembered
<02142> (8800)
Zion
<06726>_.
We hanged
<08518> (8804)
our harps
<03658>
upon the willows
<06155>
in the midst
<08432>
thereof.
For there they that carried us away captive
<07617> (8802)
required
<07592> (8804)
of us a song
<01697> <07892>_;
and they that wasted
<08437>
us [required of us] mirth
<08057>_,
[saying], Sing
<07891> (8798)
us [one] of the songs
<07892>
of Zion
<06726>_.
{a song: Heb. the words of a song} {wasted...: Heb. laid us on heaps}
How shall we sing
<07891> (8799)
the LORD'S
<03068>
song
<07892>
in a strange
<05236>
land
<0127>_?
{strange...: Heb. land of a stranger?}
If I forget
<07911> (8799)
thee, O Jerusalem
<03389>_,
let my right hand
<03225>
forget
<07911> (8799)
[her cunning].
If I do not remember
<02142> (8799)
thee, let my tongue
<03956>
cleave
<01692> (8799)
to the roof of my mouth
<02441>_;
if I prefer
<05927> (8686)
not Jerusalem
<03389>
above my chief
<07218>
joy
<08057>_.
{my chief...: Heb. the head of my joy}
Remember
<02142> (8798)_,
O LORD
<03068>_,
the children
<01121>
of Edom
<0123>
in the day
<03117>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_;
who said
<0559> (8802)_,
Rase
<06168> (8761)
[it], rase
<06168> (8761)
[it, even] to the foundation
<03247>
thereof. {Rase it: Heb. Make bare}
O daughter
<01323>
of Babylon
<0894>_,
who art to be destroyed
<07703> (8803)_;
happy
<0835>
[shall he be], that rewardeth
<07999> (8762)
thee as thou hast served
<01580> (8804) <01576>
us. {destroyed: Heb. wasted} {rewardeth...: Heb. recompenseth unto thee thy deed which thou didst to us}
Happy
<0835>
[shall he be], that taketh
<0270> (8799)
and dasheth
<05310> (8765)
thy little ones
<05768>
against the stones
<05553>_.
{the stones: Heb. the rock}
