9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
Psalm 137 is one of the most well-known in all of the Psalms. It describes the feelings of the Israelites following the Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem, the last part of which is almost a curse against the Babylonians, suggesting that those who dash their children against rocks will be blessed with happiness.
This verse expresses violent feelings towards innocent children. These children were not the ones who stole away their city, yet they have no qualms with taking out their vengeance upon them. This does not sound like something that would be written in a tome referred to as the Good Book.
