Psalm 87

The Lord loves the gates of Zion, and He Himself will establish Zion.

A Psalm or Song for the sons of Korah.

1 His afoundation is in the holy mountains.

2 The Lord loveth the agates of bZion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.

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. Selah.

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