Psalm 87

GW 1 [The city] the LORD has founded [stands] on holy mountains. NIV 1 He has set his foundation on the holy mountain; GW 2 The LORD loves the city of Zion more than any other place in Jacob. NIV 2 the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. GW 3 Glorious things are said about you, O city of God! Selah NIV 3 Glorious things are said of you, O city of God: "Selah" GW 4 [The LORD says,] "I will add Egypt and Babylon as well as Philistia, Tyre, and Sudan to the list of those who acknowledge me. Each nation [will claim that it] was born 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.' " GW 5 But it will be said of Zion, "Every race is born in it. The Most High will make it secure." 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." GW 6 The LORD will record this in the Book of Nations: "Every race [claims that it] was born there." Selah NIV 6 The LORD will write in the register of the peoples: "This one was born in Zion." "Selah" GW 7 Singers and dancers will sing, "Zion is the source of all our blessings." NIV 7 As they make music they will sing, "All my fountains are in you."
