A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. A Song. On the holy mount stands the city he founded;
the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.
Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. [Selah]
Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon; behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia--"this one was born there," they say.
And of Zion it shall be said, "This one and that one were born in her"; for the Most High himself will establish her.
The LORD records as he registers the peoples, "This one was born there." [Selah]
Singers and dancers alike say, "All my springs are in you."
