Psalm 87

Written by the Korahites; a psalm, a song.

1The Lord’s city is in the holy hills.

2The Lord loves the gates of Zion

more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.

3People say wonderful things about you,

O city of God. (Selah)

4I mention Rahab and Babylon to my followers.

Here are Philistia and Tyre, along with Ethiopia.

It is said of them, “This one was born there.”

5But it is said of Zion’s residents,

“Each one of these was born in her,

and the sovereign One makes her secure.”

6The Lord writes in the census book of the nations,

“This one was born there.” (Selah)

7As for the singers, as well as the pipers –

all of them sing within your walls.
