Of the Korahites, a psalm. A song.
1 On the holy mountain stands
the city he founded.
2 The Lord loves the gates of Zion
more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
3 Glorious things he is speaking of you,
4 ‘Among those who are mine I name Rahab and Babylon,
Philistia, Tyre, Ethiopia,
their people will say I was born in Zion.
5 As for Zion it will be said
each and all were born in her.’
The Lord will preserve her.
6 The Lord will count, when enrolling the peoples,
‘This one was born there, and that one was born there.’
7 Singers and dancers alike will say
‘All my springs are in you.’
