The Lord has built his city on the holy mountain.
He loves the city of Zion more than all of the other places where the people of Jacob live.
City of God, the Lord says glorious things about you. Selah
He says, “I will include Egypt and Babylon in a list of those who recognize me as king. I will also include Philistia and Tyre, along with Cush. I will say about them, ‘They were born in Zion.’ ”
Certainly it will be said about Zion, “This nation and that nation were born in her. The Most High God himself will make her secure.”
Here is what the Lord will write in his list of the nations. “Each of them was born in Zion.” Selah
As they make music they will sing, “Zion, all of our blessings come from you.”
