Psalm 137
Douay-Rheims Bible

By the Rivers of Babylon

(Ezekiel 1:1-3)

1{136:1}Upon the rivers of Babylon, there we sat and wept: when we remembered Sion:

2{136:2}On the willows in the midst thereof we hung up our instruments.

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.

4{136:4}How shall we sing the song of the Lord in a strange land?

5{136:5}If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand be forgotten.

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.

7{136:7}Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom, in the day of Jerusalem: Who say: Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.

8{136:8}O daughter of Babylon, miserable: blessed shall he be who shall repay thee thy payment which thou hast paid us.

9{136:9}Blessed be he that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock.
