Psalm 137:1-3 Expanded Bible (EXB)

Israelites in Captivity

137 By the rivers in Babylon we sat and ·cried [wept; C during the Babylonian exile]
    when we remembered ·Jerusalem [L Zion; C the location of the Temple].
On the ·poplar [or willow] trees nearby
    we hung our harps.
·Those who captured us [Our captors] asked us to sing;
    our ·enemies [oppressors] wanted happy songs.
They said, “Sing us a song about ·Jerusalem [L Zion; C the location of the Temple]!”
