Good morning brothers and sisters. Today's Psalm is not one of joy but of sadness. They can't even sing because of their state and the remembrance of bondage. Does bondage keep you from singing praises to the Lord?
1- By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept when we remembered Zion.
2- We hung our harps upon the willows in the midst of it.
3- For there those who carried us away captive asked of us a song and those who plundered us requested mirth, saying, "sing us one of the songs of Zion!"
4- How shall we sing the Lord's song in a foreign land?
5- If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill.
6- If I do not remember you, let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth. If I don't exalt Jerusalem above my chief joy.
7- Remember, O Lord, against the sons of Edom, the day of Jerusalem who said, "Raze it, raze it, to its very foundation!"
8- O daughter of Babylon, who are to be destroyed happy the one who repays you as you have served us!
9- Happy the one who takes and dashes your little ones against the rock!
Sadness is so great when we are in bondage. Have a blessed day and rise up child of God, rise up!
