NIV 3 Glorious things are said of you, O city of God: "Selah" BBE 4 Rahab and Babylon will be named among those who have knowledge of me; see, Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man had his birth there. NIV 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.' " BBE 5 And of Zion it will be said, This or that man had his birth there; and the Most High will make her strong. NIV 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."
