Psalm 137:1-3 New Century Version (NCV)

Israelites in Captivity

137 By the rivers in Babylon we sat and cried
    when we remembered Jerusalem.
On the poplar trees nearby
    we hung our harps.
Those who captured us asked us to sing;
    our enemies wanted happy songs.
    They said, “Sing us a song about Jerusalem!”

Psalm 137:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 137

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!”
