March 5, 2010

[Diocese of Antsiranana - Indian Ocean] Psa 137:1 By the rivers of Babylon we sat down; there we wept when we remembered Zion.
Psa 137:2 On the willows near by we hung up our harps.
Psa 137:3 Those who captured us told us to sing; they told us to entertain them: "Sing us a song about Zion."
Psa 137:4 How can we sing a song to the LORD in a foreign land?
Psa 137:5 May I never be able to play the harp again if I forget you, Jerusalem!
Psa 137:6 May I never be able to sing again if I do not remember you, if I do not think of you as my greatest joy!
Psa 137:7 Remember, LORD, what the Edomites did the day Jerusalem was captured. Remember how they kept saying, "Tear it down to the ground!"
Psa 137:8 Babylon, you will be destroyed. Happy are those who pay you back for what you have done to us---
Psa 137:9 who take your babies and smash them against a rock.
