Psalm 87 - The Joy of Living in Zion

Of the Korahites.

A Psalm. A Song.

On the holy mount stands the city he founded; the Lord loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. Selah

4 Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon; Philistia too, and Tyre, with Ethiopia[a]— “This one was born there,” they say.

5 And of Zion it shall be said, “This one and that one were born in it”; for the Most High himself will establish it. 6 The Lord records, as he registers the peoples, “This one was born there.” Selah

7 Singers and dancers alike say, “All my springs are in you.”


a. Psalm 87:4 Or Nubia; Heb Cush
