Psalms 87

A Psalm or Song for the sons of Korah (Qorach).

1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.

2 יהוה loveth the gates of Zion (Tsiyon) more than all the dwellings of Jacob (Yaaqov).

3 Glorious things are spoken of You, O city of God (Elohim). Selah.

4 “I will make mention of Rachav and Babylon (Bavel) to those who know Me: behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia (Kush);’ this man was born there.’”

5 And of Zion (Tsiyon) it shall be said, “This and that man was born in her; and the Most High (Elyon) Himself shall establish her.”

6 יהוה shall count, when He writeth up the people: “This man was born there.” Selah.

7 As well the singers as the players on instruments say, “All my springs are in You.”
