Y 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 Jerusaleın 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.
WILL praise thee with my whole
heart; before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.
2 I will worship towards thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness, and for thy truth : for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
4 Åll the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of thy mouth.
5 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord : for great is the glory of the Lord.
5 Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me; thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.
8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me; thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands,
O LORD, thou hast searched me, and
known me. 2 Thou knowest my down-sitting and mine up-rising ; thou understandest my thought afar off.
3 Thou compassest my path, and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether.
5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
7 Whither shall I go from thy Spirit ? or whither shall I flee from thy presence ?
8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there ; if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
