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.

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.’

7 Singers and dancers alike say,
   ‘All my springs are in you.’
