Psalm 87 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)
The Glorious City
By the Sons of Korah. A psalm. A song.
The Holy City
1 The city he founded is on the holy mountains.
2 The Lord loves the gates of Zion
more than all the other dwellings of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are spoken about you, O City of God. Interlude
4 I will register Rahab and Babylon among those who know me.
Look! Philistia and Tyre are there, along with Cush!
Of them I say, “This one was born there in Zion.”
5 And about Zion it will be said,
“This one and that one were born in her,
and the Most High himself will establish her.”
6 When he registers the peoples,
the Lord will write:
“This one was born there.” Interlude
7 Then the singers, as they dance, will sing,
“All my springs are in you.”
