Psalm 137

We hung our harps in the trees when we got to Babylon in captivity.
They asked us to sing, but how could we?
Remember the Edomites who loved to see Jerusalem fall.
Repay them with what happened to us - our babies smashed to death!

How this is about Jesus
He went into a deeper captivity than Israel, agonizing in Gethsemane and suffering on Calvary.
He will judge with poetic justice those who scorn and oppose His people.

It can be hard to sing when we are going through troubles.
There is a time to laugh and a time to mourn.
There is a godly wish for the demise of Christ's and our enemies.
