CXXXVII Diem

A few years back the LoL conducted a ‘Pointless Exercise’, in a search for the elusive meaning of 137…

137-maths

*Clicky, …/lights up… I have no idea where I’m going with this shambles… /drags… ‘elp me out… /blows smoke…*

*Oh well done!*

… How wonderful, then that on the 137th day of the current year, Clicky and I are able to present for you, Dear Reader, with another pointless exercise 😉

*It certainly does, Clicky, butt may hap the Prime Monster spoke with eloquence and persuasion…*

*Oh…/flicks ash…*

Have a Song, Dear Reader 😀

            ‘The history of “Rivers Of Babylon” begins way back, centuries before pop charts. The lyric is based on the Biblical Psalm 137:1-4, a hymn expressing the yearnings of the Jewish people in exile following the Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem in 586 BC. Previously the Kingdom of Israel, after being united under Kings David and Solomon, was split in two, with the Kingdom of Israel in the north being conquered by the Assyrians in 722 BC. This caused the dispersion of 11 of the 12 tribes of Israel. The southern Kingdom of Judah, home of the tribe of Judah and part of the Tribe of Levi, was free from foreign domination until the Babylonian conquest to which “Rivers Of Babylon” refers. The unknown psalmist pondered, “By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept when we remembered Zion. There on the poplars we hung our harps, for there our captors asked us for songs, our tormentors demanded songs of joy; they said, ‘Sing us one of the songs of Zion!’ How can we sing the songs of the Lord while in a foreign land?”‘
