Psalms 87

The LORD Loves the Gates of Zion

1 A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A Song. His foundation [is] on the holy mountains. 2 The LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. 3 Glorious things are ascribed to you, O city of God. Selah 4 I will mention Rahab
A poetic name for Egypt
and Babylon among those who know Me— along with Philistia, Tyre, and Cush—
That is, the upper Nile region
[when I say,] “This one was born [in Zion] .”
5 And it will be said of Zion: “This one and that one were born in her, and the Most High Himself will establish her.” 6 The LORD will record in the register of the peoples: “This one was born [in Zion] .” Selah 7 Singers and pipers will say: “All my springs [of joy] [are] in You.”
