Psalm 137 Daily Bible Reading

King David had such a heart for Yahweh. Every Christian should read the Bible every day. Going to church but not reading your Bible is a waste of time. Learn all about the Hebrew Roots of Yeshua by learning the Torah. I continue to do live readings of the Psalms on my channel. As believers we are to pray, praise, proclaim, read, repent and submit daily.

Theme of Psalm 137: A person in exile weeps over his bitterness of captivity. Our sorrow can make it difficult to imagine singing joyful songs again.

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!


  1. 137:1 Hebrew Zion; also in 137:3.
