The Book of Psalms

  Psalm 136  

136:1 Upon the rivers of Babylon, there we sat and wept: when we remembered Sion:

136:1 Super flumina Babylonis illic sedimus et flevimus cum recordaremur Sion

136:2 On the willows in the midst thereof we hung up our instruments.

136:2 In salicibus in medio eius suspendimus organa nostra

136:3 For there they that led us into captivity required of us the words of songs. And they that carried us away, said: Sing ye to us a hymn of the songs of Sion.

136:3 Quia illic interrogaverunt nos qui captivos duxerunt nos verba cantionum et qui abduxerunt nos hymnum cantate nobis de canticis Sion

136:4 How shall we sing the song of the Lord in a strange land?

136:4 Quomodo cantabimus canticum Domini in terra aliena

136:5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand be forgotten.

136:5 Si oblitus fuero tui Hierusalem oblivioni detur dextera mea

136:6 Let my tongue cleave to my jaws, if I do not remember thee:

136:6 Adhereat lingua mea faucibus meis si non meminero tui si non praeposuero Hierusalem in principio laetitiae meae

136:7 Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom, in the day of Jerusalem: Who say: Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.

136:7 Memor esto Domine filiorum Edom diem Hierusalem qui dicunt exinanite exinanite usque ad fundamentum in ea

136:8 O daughter of Babylon, miserable: blessed shall he be who shall repay thee thy payment which thou hast paid us.

136:8 Filia Babylonis misera beatus qui retribuet tibi retributionem tuam quam retribuisti nobis

136:9 Blessed be he that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock.

136:9 Beatus qui tenebit et adlidet parvulos tuos ad petram
