God Loves Jerusalem
A song of the sons of Korah.
1The Lord built Jerusalem on the holy mountain.
2He loves its gates
more than any other place in Israel.
3City of God,
wonderful things are said about you. Selah
4God says, “I will put Egypt and Babylonia
on the list of nations that know me.
People from Philistia, Tyre and Cush
will be born there.”
5They will say about Jerusalem,
“This one and that one were born there.
God Most High will strengthen her.”
6The Lord will keep a list of the nations.
He will note, “This person was born there.” Selah
7They will dance and sing,
“All good things come from Jerusalem.”
