Psalms 87:1

Context
Psalm 87 12 

Written by the Korahites; a psalm, a song.

87:1 The Lord’s city is in the holy hills. 13 

1 tn The first person pronoun appears before the first person verbal form for emphasis, reflected in the translation by “myself.”

2 tn Or perhaps “consecrated.”

3 sn Psalm 15. This psalm describes the character qualities that one must possess to be allowed access to the divine presence.

4 tn Heb “Who may live as a resident alien in your tent?”

5 sn In this context the Lord’s holy hill probably refers to Zion/Jerusalem. See Isa 66:20; Joel 2:1; 3:17; Zech 8:3; Pss 2:6; 43:3; 48:1; 87:1; Dan 9:16.

6 tn Heb “send.”

7 sn God’s deliverance is compared here to a light which will lead the psalmist back home to the Lord’s temple. Divine deliverance will in turn demonstrate the Lord’s faithfulness to his people.

8 tn Or “may they lead me.” The prefixed verbal forms here and in the next line may be taken as jussives.

9 tn Heb “bring.”

10 sn In this context the Lord’s holy hill is Zion/Jerusalem. See Isa 66:20; Joel 2:1; 3:17; Zech 8:3; Pss 2:6; 15:1; 48:1; 87:1; Dan 9:16.

11 tn Or “to your dwelling place[s].” The plural form of the noun may indicate degree or quality; this is the Lord’s special dwelling place (see Pss 46:4; 84:1; 132:5, 7).

12 sn Psalm 87. The psalmist celebrates the Lord’s presence in Zion and the special status of its citizens.

13 tn Heb “his foundation [is] in the hills of holiness.” The expression “his foundation” refers here by metonymy to the Lord’s dwelling place in Zion. The “hills” are the ones surrounding Zion (see Pss 125:2; 133:3).
