Psalms 87

Psalm 87

Zion, the City of God

A psalm of the sons of Korah. A song.

1The city he founded is on the holy mountains.

2The Lord loves Zion’s city gates

more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

3Glorious things are said about you,

city of God.Selah

4“I will make a record of those who know me:

Rahab, Babylon, Philistia, Tyre, and Cush —

each one was born there.”

5And it will be said of Zion,

“This one and that one were born in her.”

The Most High himself will establish her.

6When he registers the peoples,

the Lord will record,

“This one was born there.”Selah

7Singers and dancers alike will say,

“My whole source of joy is in you.”
