Psalm 87

A Psalm or Song for the sons of Korah.

1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.
2 The LORD loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are spoken of thee,
O city of God.|


4 I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me:
Behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia;
This man was born there.

5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her:
And the highest himself shall establish her.
6 The LORD shall count, when he writeth up the people,
That this man was born there.


7 As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there:
All my springs are in thee.
