Books of the Bible

The Book of Psalms in the Bible contains psalms: songs of praise of God. Many of them are attributed to David.

Psalm 137

Psalm 137 Bible-icon.png, which begins with "By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion" is a beautiful song, expressing sadness over the Hebrews' exile in Babylon and the loss of their homeland.

Its last two lines Bible-icon.png are often omitted, however:

8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.
9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
