Psalm 87 NLT/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A psalm of the descendants of Korah. A song. On the holy mountain stands the city founded by the LORD. 1 He has set his foundation on the holy mountain;
2 He loves the city of Jerusalem more than any other city in Israel. 2 the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
3 O city of God, what glorious things are said of you! Interlude 3 Glorious things are said of you, O city of God: "Selah"
4 I will record Egypt and Babylon among those who know me -- also Philistia and Tyre, and even distant Ethiopia. They have all become citizens 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 And it will be said of Jerusalem, "Everyone has become a citizen here." And the Most High will personally bless this city. 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 When the LORD registers the nations, he will say, "This one has become a citizen of Jerusalem." Interlude 6 The LORD will write in the register of the peoples: "This one was born in Zion." "Selah"
7 At all the festivals, the people will sing, "The source of my life is in Jerusalem!" 7 As they make music they will sing, "All my fountains are in you."
