On 1the holy mount 2stands the city he founded;
the LORD 3loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.
4Glorious things of you are spoken, O 5city of God. Selah
Among those who 6know me I mention 7Rahab and Babylon; behold, Philistia and Tyre, with 8Cush-- "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 9establish her.
The LORD records as he 10registers the peoples, "This one was born there." Selah
11Singers and 12dancers alike say, "All my 13springs are in you."
