5 Indeed, of Zion it will be said, "This one and that one were born in her, and the Most High himself will establish her."
5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.
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.
5 The word's getting out on Zion: "Men and women, right and left, get born again in her!"
5 And of Zion it will be said, "This one and that one were born in her; And the Most High Himself shall establish her."
5 Regarding Jerusalem it will be said, "Everyone enjoys the rights of citizenship there." And the Most High will personally bless this city.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 87:5
Commentary on Psalm 87:4-7
(Read Psalm 87:4-7)
The church of Christ is more glorious and excellent than the nations of the earth. In the records of heaven, the meanest of those who are born again stand registered. When God renders to every man according to his works, he shall observe who enjoyed the privileges of his sanctuary. To them much was given, and of them much will be required. Let those that dwell in Zion, mark this, and live up to their profession. Zion's songs shall be sung with joy and triumph. The springs of the joy of a carnal worldling are in wealth and pleasure; but of a gracious soul, in the word of God and prayer. All grace and consolation are derived from Christ, through his ordinances, to the souls of believers.
