Psalm 137:7-9 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

III

Remember, Lord, against Edom
    that day at Jerusalem.
They said: “Level it, level it
    down to its foundations!”
Desolate Daughter Babylon, you shall be destroyed,
    blessed the one who pays you back
    what you have done us!
[a]Blessed the one who seizes your children
    and smashes them against the rock.

Footnotes:

  1. 137:9 Blessed the one who seizes your children and smashes them against the rock: the children represent the future generations, and so must be destroyed if the enemy is truly to be eradicated.
