Psalm 137 Text (WEB)
  1. By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down. Yes, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
  2. On the willows in its midst, we hung up our harps.
  3. For there, those who led us captive asked us for songs. Those who tormented us demanded songs of joy: "Sing us one of the songs of Zion!"
  4. How can we sing Yahweh's song in a foreign land?
  5. If I forget you, Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill.
  6. Let my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth if I don't remember you; if I don't prefer Jerusalem above my chief joy.
  7. Remember, Yahweh, against the children of Edom, the day of Jerusalem; who said, "Raze it! Raze it even to its foundation!"
  8. Daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction, he will be happy who rewards you, as you have served us.
  9. Happy shall he be, who takes and dashes your little ones against the rock. By David.
Psalm 137 Text (Hebrew)
  1. על נהרות בבל שם ישבנו גם־בכינו בזכרנו את־ציון׃
  2. על־ערבים בתוכה תלינו כנרותינו׃
  3. כי שם שאלונו שובינו דברי־שיר ותוללינו שמחה שירו לנו משיר ציון׃
  4. איך נשיר את־שיר־יהוה על אדמת נכר׃
  5. אם־אשכחך ירושלם תשכח ימיני׃
  6. תדבק־לשוני לחכי אם־לא אזכרכי אם־לא אעלה את־ירושלם על ראש שמחתי׃
  7. זכר יהוה לבני אדום את יום ירושלם האמרים ערו ערו עד היסוד בה׃
  8. בת־בבל השדודה אשרי שישלם־לך את־גמולך שגמלת לנו׃
  9. אשרי שיאחז ונפץ את־עלליך אל־הסלע׃
Psalm 137 Text (Greek)
  1. τω δαυιδ επι των ποταμων βαβυλωνος εκει εκαθισαμεν και εκλαυσαμεν εν τω μνησθηναι ημας της
  2. επι ταις ιτεαις εν μεσω αυτης εκρεμασαμεν τα οργανα
  3. οτι εκει επηρωτησαν ημας οι αιχμαλωτευσαντες ημας λογους ωδων και οι απαγαγοντες ημας υμνον ασατε ημιν εκ των ωδων
  4. πως ασωμεν την ωδην κυριου επι γης
  5. εαν επιλαθωμαι σου ιερουσαλημ επιλησθειη η δεξια
  6. κολληθειη η γλωσσα μου τω λαρυγγι μου εαν μη σου μνησθω εαν μη προαναταξωμαι την ιερουσαλημ εν αρχη της ευφροσυνης
  7. μνησθητι κυριε των υιων εδωμ την ημεραν ιερουσαλημ των λεγοντων εκκενουτε εκκενουτε εως ο θεμελιος εν
  8. θυγατηρ βαβυλωνος η ταλαιπωρος μακαριος ος ανταποδωσει σοι το ανταποδομα σου ο ανταπεδωκας

Psalm 137 Text (Latin)
  1. Psalmus David, Jeremiæ. Super flumina Babylonis illic sedimus et flevimus, cum recordaremur Sion.
  2. In salicibus in medio ejus suspendimus organa nostra ;
  3. quia illic interrogaverunt nos, qui captivos duxerunt nos, verba cantionum ; et qui abduxerunt nos : Hymnum cantate nobis de canticis Sion.
  4. Quomodo cantabimus canticum Domini in terra aliena ?
  5. Si oblitus fuero tui, Jerusalem, oblivioni detur dextera mea.
  6. Adhæreat lingua mea faucibus meis, si non meminero tui ; si non proposuero Jerusalem in principio lætitiæ meæ.
  7. Memor esto, Domine, filiorum Edom, in die Jerusalem, qui dicunt : Exinanite, exinanite usque ad fundamentum in ea.
  8. Filia Babylonis misera ! beatus qui retribuet tibi retributionem tuam quam retribuisti nobis.
  9. Beatus qui tenebit, et allidet parvulos tuos ad petram.
Psalm 137 Text (KJV)
  1. By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
  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 of the 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.
  8. O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.
  9. Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
