Psalms 87

A song. A psalm of the descendants of Korah.
 1  On the holy mountain
  stands the city founded by the LORD.
 2  He loves the city of Jerusalem
  more than any other city in Israel. [2] 
 3  O city of God,
  what glorious things are said of you!    Interlude

 4  I will count Egypt [4]  and Babylon among those who know me—
  also Philistia and Tyre, and even distant Ethiopia. [4] 
  They have all become citizens of Jerusalem!
 5  Regarding Jerusalem [5]  it will be said,
  "Everyone enjoys the rights of citizenship there."
  And the Most High will personally bless this city.
 6  When the LORD registers the nations, he will say, "They have all become citizens of Jerusalem."  7  The people will play flutes [7]  and sing,
  "The source of my life springs from Jerusalem!"
<<  87:2 Hebrew He loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. See note on 44:4.
<<  87:4a Hebrew Rahab, the name of a mythical sea monster that represents chaos in ancient literature. The name is used here as a poetic name for Egypt. 87:4b Hebrew Cush.
<<  87:5 Hebrew Zion.
<<  87:7 Or will dance.
