Psalm 137

King James Version

See Chapter Notes:

 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.

Babylon/Babel - confusion; from 'balal' (1101); confusion; Babel (i.e. Babylon), including Babylonia and the Babylonian empire; (1101) - a primitive root; to overflow (specifically with oil.); by implication, to mix; also (denominatively from 'bliyl' (1098)) to fodder:--anoint, confound, X fade, mingle, mix (self), give provender, temper.

 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.

 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 of the songs of Zion.

 How shall we sing the LORD's song in a strange land?

 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.

 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.

 Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.

 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.

Babylon/Babel - confusion; from 'balal' (1101); confusion; Babel (i.e. Babylon), including Babylonia and the Babylonian empire; (1101) - a primitive root; to overflow (specifically with oil.); by implication, to mix; also (denominatively from 'bliyl' (1098)) to fodder:--anoint, confound, X fade, mingle, mix (self), give provender, temper.

 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
