Each nation [will claim that it] was born there." 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.' "

6 The LORD will record this in the Book of Nations: "Every race [claims that it] was born there." Selah 6 The LORD will write in the register of the peoples: "This one was born in Zion." "Selah"
