The Privileges of Citizenship in Zion.
A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A Song.
87 His foundation is in the holy mountains.
2 The Lord loves the gates of Zion
More than all the other dwelling places of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are spoken of you,
City of God. Selah
4 “I shall mention [a]Rahab and Babylon [b]among those who know Me;
Behold, Philistia and Tyre with [c]Cush:
‘This one was born there.’”
5 But of Zion it will be said, “This one and that one were born in her”;
And the Most High Himself will establish her.
6 The Lord will count when He registers the peoples,
“This one was born there.” Selah
7 Then those who sing as well as those who [d]play the flutes will say,
“All my springs of joy are in you.”
