Psalm 87

1 Founded by him on the holy mountain,

 2 the LORD loves the gates of Sion,

 more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

 3 Of you are told glorious things,

 you, O city of God!

4 “Rahab and Babylon I will count

 among those who know me;

 of Tyre, Philistia, Ethiopia, it is told,

 ‘There was this one born.’

 5 But of Sion it shall be said,

 ‘Each one was born in her.’”

He, the Most High, established it.

 6 In his register of peoples the LORD writes,

 “Here was this one born.”

 7 The singers cry out in chorus,

 “In you, all find their home.”
