Psalm 87:1-7

A Psalm or Song for the sons of Korah. 87  His foundation is in the holy mountains. 2  The LORD loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. 3  Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah. 4  I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me: behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man was born there. 5  And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her. 6  The LORD shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah. 7  As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee.
