Lament of the Exiles 1By the rivers of Babylon — there we sat down and wept when we remembered Zion.Ezk 1:1,3 2There we hung up our lyres on the poplar trees,Jb 30:31; Ezk 26:13 3for our captors there asked us for songs, and our tormentors, for rejoicing: “Sing us one of the songs of Zion.”Ps 80:6 4How can we sing the Lord’s song on foreign soil?Neh 12:46 5If I forget you, Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill.Is 65:11 6May my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth if I do not remember you, if I do not exalt Jerusalem as my greatest joy!Jb 29:10; Ps 22:15; Ezk 3:26 7Remember, Lord, what the Edomites said that day137:7 The day Jerusalem fell to the Babylonians in 586 BC at Jerusalem: “Destroy it! Destroy it down to its foundations!” Is 34:5–6; Ezk 35:2; Ob 10–14 8Daughter Babylon, doomed to destruction, happy is the one who pays you back what you have done to us.Jr 50:1–46; 51:1–64 9Happy is he who takes your little ones and dashes them against the rocks. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves.
