Psalms 87:1-7

Of the sons of Ko′rah. A melody, a song. 87  His foundation is in the holy mountains.+   Jehovah is more in love with the gates of Zion+ Than with all the tabernacles of Jacob.+   Glorious things are being spoken about you, O city of the [true] God.+ Se′lah.   I shall make mention of Ra′hab*+ and Babylon*+ as among those knowing me; Here are Phi·lis′ti·a+ and Tyre, together with Cush:* “This is one who was born there.”+   And respecting Zion it will be said: “Each and every one* was born in her.”+ And the Most High+ himself will firmly establish her.+   Jehovah himself will declare, when recording the peoples:+ “This is one who was born there.”+ Se′lah.   There will also be singers as well as dancers of circle dances:+ “All my springs are in you.”+
