Psalm 137:1-3 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

137 We sat by the rivers in Babylon
    and cried as we remembered Zion.
We hung our harps nearby, there on the willow trees.[a]
There in Babylon, those who captured us told us to sing.
    Our enemies told us to entertain them.
    They said, “Sing us one of your songs about Zion.”
