Psalm 87

New International Version

1 He has founded his city on the holy mountain. 2 The Lord loves the gates of Zion more than all the other dwellings of Jacob. 3 Glorious things are said of you, city of God:[1] 4 “I will record Rahab[2] and Babylon among those who acknowledge me— Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush[3]— and will say, ‘This one was born in Zion.’ ”[4] 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.”
