1By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Tziyon [Parched Place].
2We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
3For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us [required of us] gladness, [saying], Sing us [one] of the songs of Tziyon [Parched Place].
4How shall we sing the Lord-Yehōvah’s [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] song in a strange land?
5If I forget youi, O Yerushalayim [Foundation Of Peace], let my right hand forget [her cunning].
6If I do not remember youi, let my tongue cleave (split open; cut open; divide) to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Yerushalayim [Foundation Of Peace] above my chief joy.
7Remember, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], the children of Edom [Red] in the day of Yerushalayim [Foundation Of Peace]; who said, Raze [it], raze [it, even] to the foundation thereof.
8O daughter of Babylon, who are to be destroyed; happy [shall he be], that rewards youi as youi have served us.
9Happy [shall he be], that takes and dashes youri little ones against the stones.
