Psalm 87

By Korah’s descendants; a psalm; a song.

The city Yahweh has founded stands on holy mountains.
Yahweh loves the city of Zion
    more than any other place in Jacob.
Glorious things are said about you, O city of Elohim! Selah

The Lord says, “I will add Egypt and Babylon
    as well as Philistia, Tyre, and Sudan
        to the list of those who acknowledge me.
            Each nation will claim that it was born there.”

But it will be said of Zion,
    “Every race is born in it.
        Elyon will make it secure.”
Yahweh will record this in the Book of Nations:
    “Every race claims that it was born there.” Selah
Singers and dancers will sing,
    “Zion is the source of all our blessings.”
