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.
