Psalm 136

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures for ever.
Give thanks to the God of gods.
His love endures for ever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
His love endures for ever.

to him who alone does great wonders,
His love endures for ever.
who by his understanding made the heavens,
His love endures for ever.
who spread out the earth upon the waters,
His love endures for ever.
who made the great lights –
His love endures for ever.
the sun to govern the day,
His love endures for ever.
the moon and stars to govern the night;
His love endures for ever.

10 to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt
His love endures for ever.
11 and brought Israel out from among them
His love endures for ever.
12 with a mighty hand and outstretched arm;
His love endures for ever.

13 to him who divided the Red Sea[a] asunder
His love endures for ever.
14 and brought Israel through the midst of it,
His love endures for ever.
15 but swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea;
His love endures for ever.

16 to him who led his people through the wilderness;
His love endures for ever.

17 to him who struck down great kings,
His love endures for ever.
18 and killed mighty kings –
His love endures for ever.
19 Sihon king of the Amorites
His love endures for ever.
20 and Og king of Bashan –
His love endures for ever.
21 and gave their land as an inheritance,
His love endures for ever.
22 an inheritance to his servant Israel.
His love endures for ever.

23 He remembered us in our low estate
His love endures for ever.
24 and freed us from our enemies.
His love endures for ever.
25 He gives food to every creature.
His love endures for ever.

26 Give thanks to the God of heaven.
His love endures for ever.

New Russian Translation

Psalms 136

Псалом 136

1У рек Вавилона мы сидели и плакали,

когда вспоминали Сион.

2Там на ивах мы повесили наши арфы.

3Там пленившие нас требовали от нас песен,

притеснители наши требовали от нас веселья,

говоря: «Спойте нам одну из песен Сиона».

4Как нам петь песнь Господа

в чужой земле?

5Если я забуду тебя, Иерусалим,

то пусть забудет моя правая рука свои умения.

6Если не буду помнить тебя,

то пусть прилипнет язык мой к небу,

если не поставлю Иерусалим

во главе своего веселья.

7Припомни, Господи, сыновей Эдома

в день захвата вавилонянами Иерусалима,

как они говорили: «Разрушайте,

разрушайте его до основания!»

8Дочь Вавилона[a], обреченная на разорение:

блажен тот, кто воздаст тебе

за то, что ты сделала с нами.

9Блажен тот, кто возьмет и разобьет

твоих младенцев о камень.
