A Psalm by the sons of Korah; a Song.

87 His foundation is in the holy mountains.
    Yahweh loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
Glorious things are spoken about you, city of God. Selah.
I will record Rahab[a] and Babylon among those who acknowledge me.
    Behold, Philistia, Tyre, and also Ethiopia:
    “This one was born there.”
Yes, of Zion it will be said, “This one and that one was born in her;”
    the Most High himself will establish her.
Yahweh will count, when he writes up the peoples,
    “This one was born there.” Selah.
Those who sing as well as those who dance say,
    “All my springs are in you.”


  1. 87:4 Rahab is a reference to Egypt.
