Psalm 87 New Living Translation

The Privileges of Dwelling in Zion

87 1  On the holy mountain stands the city founded by the Lord . 2  He loves the city of Jerusalem more than any other city in Israel. 3  O city of God, what glorious things are said of you! Interlude

4  I will count Egypt and Babylon among those who know me- also Philistia and Tyre, and even distant Ethiopia. They have all become citizens of Jerusalem! 5  Regarding Jerusalem it will be said, "Everyone enjoys the rights of citizenship there." And the Most High will personally bless this city. 6  When the Lord registers the nations, he will say, "They have all become citizens of Jerusalem." Interlude 7  The people will play flutes and sing, "The source of my life springs from Jerusalem!"
