he loves the city of Jerusalem.
3Listen, city of God,
to the wonderful things he says about you:
4“I will include Egypt and Babylonia
when I list the nations that obey me;
I will number among the inhabitants of Jerusalem
the people of Philistia, Tyre, and Ethiopia#87.4 Ethiopia: See Word List..”
5Of Zion it will be said
that all nations belong there
and that the Almighty will make her strong.
6The LORD will write a list of the peoples
and include them all as citizens of Jerusalem.
7They dance and sing,
“In Zion is the source of all our blessings.”
