|1||By the rivers of
Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
||By the rivers of Babylon|
|2||We hanged our harps
upon the willows in the midst thereof.
|3||For there they that
carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us
required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one
songs of Zion.
|4||How shall we sing
the LORD'S song in a strange land?
|5||If I forget thee, O
Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.
|6||If I do not remember
thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not
Jerusalem above my chief joy.
|7||Remember, O LORD,
the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it,
rase it, even to the foundation thereof.
||children of Edom|
|8||O daughter of
Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that
thee as thou hast served us.
|9||Happy shall he
be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
||Happy dasheth thy little ones|
