NIV 3 Glorious things are said of you, O city of God: "Selah" MSG 4 I name them off, those among whom I'm famous: Egypt and Babylon, also Philistia, even Tyre, along with Cush. Word's getting around; they point them out: "This one was born again here!" 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.' " MSG 5 The word's getting out on Zion: "Men and women, right and left, get born again in her!"
