1aA psalm of the Korahites. A song.
His foundation is on holy mountains,
2The LORD loves the gates* of Zion
more than any dwelling in Jacob.
3Glorious things are said of you,
O city of God!
4Rahab and Babylon I count
among those who know me.
See, Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia,
“This one was born there.”
5*And of Zion it will be said:
“Each one was born in it.”b
The Most High will establish it;c
6the LORD notes in the register of the peoples:
“This one was born there.”d
7So singers and dancers:
“All my springs are in you.”e
* [87:2] The gates: the city itself, a common Hebrew idiom.
