"Remember Jerusalem" Video Devotion

"Remember Jerusalem" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 137, verses 5 and 6. It was a bitter time for the children of Israel. Jerusalem had been ransacked and most of the people routed from their homes and carted off to Babylon. While standing on the shores of the Babylonian rivers, the Israelites lamented their fate. The writer of Psalm 137 implored the people to remember Jerusalem. If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. What, exactly, was the Psalmist calling the Jews to remember? Were they to remember their lovely city, the happy occasions, their loving families surrounding them, and their magnificent temple, built by Solomon so many years before? Or, was the Psalmist imploring the people to remember God? The distinction between these questions is not to be missed!




God Bless You,
