Psalms 137:9, Happy shall he be

By Pastor Rune Enoe, Director of Theological Science

Pastor Rune Enoe, Director of Theological Science.I still shudder when I think of the early 80'ies, when my kids would sing along to the band known as Boney M (which was really just another Negro pimp and his three whores).

By the rivers of Babylon (dark tears of Babylon)
There we sat down (you got to sing a song)
Ye-eah we wept, (sing a song of love)
When we remember Zion. (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)

The pimp and his whores of Babylon made themselves a fortune out of their hit song "By The Rivers of Babylon", which they ripped off from Psalm 137, of course:

Psalms 137:1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.

Like all other FALSE Christians, these Negro song writers pick and chose from the Bible. They only used the first half of the Psalm and skipped the last verse:

Psalms 137:9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.

There it is: True happiness is smashing the children of Babylon against the rocks. What a message for our coalition forces in Iraq. PRAISE! Smile I have lost count of the number of FALSE Christians, who have tried to teach me that it's "symbolic" or "a metaphor". For instance a FALSE Christian once claimed that it, "does not refer to real children, but is a representation for something else, much like the book of revelations is."

Nonsense! The Bible is LITERALLY true and little children means just what it says: little children. This is proved by the fact that Psalm 137 is based upon Isaiah's vision of vengeance in Babylon:

Isaiah 13:1 The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see.
[...]
Isaiah 13:9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
[...]
Isaiah 13:15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined [unto them] shall fall by the sword.
Isaiah 13:16 Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.

Glory to God on High! There's a ton of quality Bible art on the Net and in our libraries, but the only illustration I could find of Psalm 137:9 was from the Flaming Fire Illustrated Bible.
