Psalm 137:1-3 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Lament over the Destruction of Jerusalem

137 By the waters[a] of Babylon,
there we sat down and wept,
    when we remembered Zion.
On the willows[b] there
    we hung up our lyres.
For there our captors
    required of us songs,
and our tormentors, mirth, saying,
    “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”
