1On the Harei Kodesh (Holy Mountain) stands His foundation. 2Hashem loveth the sha'arei Tziyon more than all the mishkenot Ya'akov. 3Glorious things are spoken of thee, O Ir HaElohim. Selah. 4To them that know me, I will make mention of Rachav and Babylon; hinei, Philistia, and Tzor, with Ethiopia: this man was born there. 5But of Tziyon it shall be said, This one and that one were born in her; and Elyon Himself shall establish it. 6Hashem shall register, when He writeth up the people, that this one was born there. Selah. 7The sharim (ones singing) as well as the cholelim (players on instruments) shall be there; all my fountains are in thee.
