Psalm 87
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

The LORD Loves the Gates of Zion

1(86:1) A Psalm of a Song for the sons of Core. His foundations are in the holy mountains.

2(86:2) The Lord loves the gates of Sion, more than all the tabernacles of Jacob.

3(86:3) Glorious things have been spoken of thee, O city of God. Pause.

4(86:4) I will make mention of Raab and Babylon to them that know me: behold also the Philistines, and Tyre, and the people of the Ethiopians: these were born there.

5(86:5) A man shall say, Sion is my mother; and such a man was born in her; and the Highest himself has founded her.

6(86:6) The Lord shall recount it in the writing of the people, and of these princes that were born in her.

7(86:7) The dwelling of all within thee is as the dwelling of those that rejoice.

The English translation of The Septuagint by Sir Lancelot Charles Lee Brenton (1851)
