1 His foundation is on the holy mountains.
The Lord loves the gates of Zion
more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
2 Glorious things are spoken of you,
Zion, city of our God.
3 I record Egypt and Babylon as those who know me;
behold Philistia, Tyre and Ethiopia:
in Zion were they born.
4 And of Zion it shall be said, Each one was born in her,
and the Most High himself has established her.
5 The Lord will record as he writes up the peoples,
This one also was born there.
6 And as they dance they shall sing,
All my fresh springs are in you.
