A psalm of the Sons of Korah. A song.

1 The LORD has built his city on the holy mountain.
2 He loves the city of Zion more than all of the other places where the people of Jacob live.
3 City of God, the LORD says glorious things about you. "Selah"
4 He says, "I will include Egypt and Babylon in a list of those who recognize me as king. I will also include Philistia and Tyre, along with Cush. I will say about them, 'They were born in Zion.' "
5 Certainly it will be said about Zion, "This nation and that nation were born in her. The Most High God himself will make her secure."
6 Here is what the LORD will write in his list of the nations. "Each of them was born in Zion." "Selah"
7 As they make music they will sing, "Zion, all of our blessings come from you."
