Psalm 87

A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A Song.

The city of His foundation is on the holy mountain.
The Lord loves the gates of Zion
    more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.

Glorious things are spoken of you,
    O city of God. Selah.
I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon
    to those who know Me;
look, Philistia and Tyre with Ethiopia;
    “This man was born there.”
But of Zion it shall be said,
    “This one and that one were born in her,”
    for the Most High shall make her secure.
The Lord shall count when He registers the people,
    “This one was born there.” Selah

As well the singers and the players of instruments say,
    “All my springs are in you.”
