Written by the Korahites; a psalm, a song.
87:1 The Lord’s city is in the holy hills.
87:2 The Lord loves the gates of Zion
more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.
87:3 People say wonderful things about you,
O city of God. (Selah)
87:4 I mention Rahab and Babylon to my followers.
Here are Philistia and Tyre, along with Ethiopia.
It is said of them, “This one was born there.”
87:5 But it is said of Zion’s residents,
“Each one of these was born in her,
and the sovereign One makes her secure.”
87:6 The Lord writes in the census book of the nations,
“This one was born there.” (Selah)
87:7 As for the singers, as well as the pipers –
all of them sing within your walls.
