Psalm 87

The Joy of Living in Zion

Of the Korahites. A Psalm. A Song.

1

On the holy mount stands the city he founded;

2

the Lord loves the gates of Zion

more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

3

Glorious things are spoken of you,

O city of God.Selah

 

4

Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon;

Philistia too, and Tyre, with Ethiopia—

“This one was born there,” they say.

 

5

And of Zion it shall be said,

“This one and that one were born in it”;

for the Most High himself will establish it.

6

The Lord records, as he registers the peoples,

“This one was born there.”Selah

 

7

Singers and dancers alike say,

“All my springs are in you.”
