Psalm 87 English Standard Version

The Privileges of Dwelling in Zion

87 1  On the holy mount stands the city he founded; 2  the Lord loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwelling places of Jacob. 3  Glorious things of you are spoken, O city of God. Selah

4  Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon; behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Cush[1]-- "This one was born there," they say. 5  And of Zion it shall be said, "This one and that one were born in her"; for the Most High himself will establish her. 6  The Lord records as he registers the peoples, "This one was born there." Selah 7  Singers and dancers alike say, "All my springs are in you."
