Psalms 87
The Joy of Living in Zion
Of the Korahites. A Psalm. A Song.
1On the holy mount stands the city he founded;
2the Lord loves the gates of Zion
more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
3Glorious things are spoken of you,
O city of God. Selah
4Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon;
Philistia too, and Tyre, with Ethiopia#87.4 Or Nubia; Heb Cush
“This one was born there,” they say.
5And of Zion it shall be said,
“This one and that one were born in it”;
for the Most High himself will establish it.
6The Lord records, as he registers the peoples,
“This one was born there.” Selah
7Singers and dancers alike say,
“All my springs are in you.”
