Psalm 87
NASB 1977►► 
The Privileges of Citizenship in Zion.

A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A Song.

     1His foundation is in the holy mountains.

     2The LORD loves the gates of Zion
            More than all the other dwelling places of Jacob.

     3Glorious things are spoken of you,
            O city of God. Selah.

     4“I shall mention Rahab and Babylon among those who know Me;
            Behold, Philistia and Tyre with Ethiopia:
            ‘This one was born there.’”

     5But of Zion it shall be said, “This one and that one were born in her”;
            And the Most High Himself will establish her.

     6The LORD shall count when He registers the peoples,
            “This one was born there.” Selah.

     7Then those who sing as well as those who play the flutes shall say,
            “All my springs of joy are in you.”
