Young's Bible translation
IntraText CT - Text
By rivers of Babylon -- There we did sit, Yea, we wept when we remembered Zion.
On willows in its midst we hung our harps.
For there our captors asked us the words of a song, And our spoilers -- joy: 'Sing ye to us of a song of Zion.'
How do we sing the song of Jehovah, On the land of a stranger?
If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, my right hand forgetteth!
My tongue doth cleave to my palate, If I do not remember thee, If I do not exalt Jerusalem above my chief joy.
Remember, Jehovah, for the sons of Edom, The day of Jerusalem, Those saying, 'Rase, rase to its foundation!'
O daughter of Babylon, O destroyed one, O the happiness of him who repayeth to thee thy deed, That thou hast done to us.
O the happiness of him who doth seize, And hath dashed thy sucklings on the rock!
