诗篇 137

被掳者的哀歌

1我们坐在巴比伦河畔,
想起锡安禁不住凄然泪下。
我们把琴挂在柳树上。
俘虏我们的人要我们唱歌,
掳掠我们的人要我们歌唱,说:
“给我们唱一首锡安的歌。”
我们流落异邦,
怎能唱颂赞耶和华的歌呢?
耶路撒冷啊,倘若我忘了你,
情愿我的右手无法再拨弄琴弦;
倘若我忘了你,
不以你为我的至爱,
情愿我的舌头不能再歌唱。

耶和华啊,
求你记住耶路撒冷沦陷时以东人的行径。
他们喊道:
“拆毁这城,把它夷为平地!”
巴比伦城啊,
你快要灭亡了,
那向你以牙还牙为我们复仇的人有福了!
那抓住你的婴孩摔在石头上的人有福了!

New Living Translation

Psalm 137

Psalm 137

Beside the rivers of Babylon, we sat and wept
    as we thought of Jerusalem.[a]
We put away our harps,
    hanging them on the branches of poplar trees.
For our captors demanded a song from us.
    Our tormentors insisted on a joyful hymn:
    “Sing us one of those songs of Jerusalem!”
But how can we sing the songs of the Lord
    while in a pagan land?

If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
    let my right hand forget how to play the harp.
May my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth
    if I fail to remember you,
    if I don’t make Jerusalem my greatest joy.

O Lord, remember what the Edomites did
    on the day the armies of Babylon captured Jerusalem.
“Destroy it!” they yelled.
    “Level it to the ground!”
O Babylon, you will be destroyed.
    Happy is the one who pays you back
    for what you have done to us.
Happy is the one who takes your babies
    and smashes them against the rocks!
