Psalm 87 World English Bible

The Privileges of Dwelling in Zion

87 1  His foundation is in the holy mountains. 2  Yahweh loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. 3  Glorious things are spoken about you, city of God. Selah.

4  I will record Rahab [1] and Babylon among those who acknowledge me.
Behold, Philistia, Tyre, and also Ethiopia:
“This one was born there.” 5  Yes, of Zion it will be said, “This one and that one was born in her;”
the Most High himself will establish her. 6  Yahweh will count, when he writes up the peoples,
“This one was born there.” Selah. 7  Those who sing as well as those who dance say,
“All my springs are in you.”


[1] 87:4 Rahab is a reference to Egypt.
