Psalm 87 GNT/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 The Lord built his city on the sacred hill; 1 He has set his foundation on the holy mountain;
2 more than any other place in Israel he loves the city of Jerusalem. 2 the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
3 Listen, city of God, to the wonderful things he says about you: 3 Glorious things are said of you, O city of God: "Selah"
4 "I will include Egypt and Babylonia when I list the nations that obey me; the people of Philistia, Tyre, and Ethiopia I will number among the inhabitants of Jerusalem." 4 "I will record Rahab and Babylon among those who acknowledge me-- Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush-- and will say, 'This one was born in Zion.' "
5 Of Zion it will be said that all nations belong there and that the Almighty will make her strong. 5 Indeed, of Zion it will be said, "This one and that one were born in her, and the Most High himself will establish her."
6 The Lord will write a list of the peoples and include them all as citizens of Jerusalem. 6 The LORD will write in the register of the peoples: "This one was born in Zion." "Selah"
7 They dance and sing, "In Zion is the source of all our blessings." 7 As they make music they will sing, "All my fountains are in you."
