The Holy Bible, King James Version Revised

The Book of Psalms


By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, and 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 songs; and they that tormented 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 foreign land?
    5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its 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, what the children of Edom did in the day Jerusalem fell, who said, Raze it, raze 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.
