Psalm 137 – Is lament okay? Is payback okay? – Two views
How do we deal with this Psalm 137, especially the last two verses.
I will present two ways to view this.
Psalm 137 is the lament of those in exile. How can Israel worship God away from the temple? How can Israel remain faithful in a foreign land? There they must guard the faith treasure entrusted to them. The closing verses of this psalm seem unbelievably harsh, but they reflect the pain and anger of an oppressed people.
