Psalms 87

Psalm 87

Of the Korahites, a psalm. A song.

On the holy mountain stands
the city he founded.
The  Lord loves the gates of Zion
more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
Glorious things he is speaking of you,
you city of God. (Selah)

“Among those who are mine I name Rahab and Babylon,
Philistia, Tyre, Ethiopia,
their people will say I was born in Zion.
As for Zion it will be said
each and all were born in her.”
The  Lord will preserve her.

The  Lord shall count, when enrolling the peoples,
“This one was born there, and that one was born there.” (Selah)
Singers and dancers alike will say
“All my springs are in you.”
