Psalmien 87 Raamattu 1933/38 (R1933)

87 Koorahilaisten virsi, laulu. Pyhille vuorille perustamaansa kaupunkia,

Siionin portteja, Herra rakastaa enemmän kuin Jaakobin kaikkia muita asuinsijoja.

On kunniakasta, mitä sinusta sanotaan, sinä Jumalan kaupunki: - Sela. -

"Minä mainitsen tunnustajikseni Rahabin ja Baabelin; katso, Filisteasta, Tyyrosta ja Etiopiasta minä mainitsen: Sekin on syntynyt siellä."

Mutta Siionista sanotaan: "Joka-ainoa on syntynyt siellä". Sitä Korkein itse vahvana pitää.

Herra luettelee, kirjoittaessaan kirjaan kansat: "Tämäkin on syntynyt siellä". Sela.

Veisaten, karkeloiden sanotaan: "Kaikki minun lähteeni ovat sinussa".

Psalm 87 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 87

Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm. A song.

He has founded his city on the holy mountain.
The Lord loves the gates of Zion
    more than all the other dwellings of Jacob.

Glorious things are said of you,
    city of God:[a]
“I will record Rahab[b] and Babylon
    among those who acknowledge me—
Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush[c]
    and will say, ‘This one was born in Zion.’”[d]
Indeed, of Zion it will be said,
    “This one and that one were born in her,
    and the Most High himself will establish her.”
The Lord will write in the register of the peoples:
    “This one was born in Zion.”

As they make music they will sing,
    “All my fountains are in you.”
