Psalms 87

Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm. A song.

1 He has set his foundation on the holy mountain;

2 the Lord loves the gates of Zion
     more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are said of you,
     O city of God:
4 "I will record Rahab(1) and Babylon
     among those who acknowledge me--
Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush(2)--
     and will say, 'This(3) one was born in Zion.'"
5 Indeed, of Zion it will be said,
     "This one and that one were born in her,
     and the Most High himself will establish her."
6 The Lord will write in the register of the peoples:
     "This one was born in Zion."
7 As they make music they will sing, "All my fountains are in you."
