Psalms 87

1

A PSALM OF THE SONS OF KORAH. A SONG. On the holy mount stands the city he founded;

2

the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.

3

Glorious things of you are spoken, O city of God. Selah

4

Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon; behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Cush- "This one was born there," they say.

5

And of Zion it shall be said, "This one and that one were born in her"; for the Most High himself will establish her.

6

The LORD records as he registers the peoples, "This one was born there." Selah

7

Singers and dancers alike say, "All my springs are in you."
