Psalm 87

GNT 1 The Lord built his city on the sacred hill; NIV 1 He has set his foundation on the holy mountain; GNT 2 more than any other place in Israel he loves the city of Jerusalem. NIV 2 the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. GNT 3 Listen, city of God, to the wonderful things he says about you: NIV 3 Glorious things are said of you, O city of God: "Selah" GNT 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." 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.' " GNT 5 Of Zion it will be said that all nations belong there and that the Almighty 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." GNT 6 The Lord will write a list of the peoples and include them all as citizens of Jerusalem. NIV 6 The LORD will write in the register of the peoples: "This one was born in Zion." "Selah" GNT 7 They dance and sing, "In Zion is the source of all our blessings." NIV 7 As they make music they will sing, "All my fountains are in you."
