Psalm 87 - Glorious Things of You Are Spoken

Glorious Things of You Are Spoken

A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. A Song.


1 On the holy mount stands the city he founded;

2 the Lord loves the gates of Zion

more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.

3 Glorious things of you are spoken,

O city of God. Selah


4 Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon;

behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Cush—

“This one was born there,” they say.

5 And of Zion it shall be said,

“This one and that one were born in her”;

for the Most High himself will establish her.

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.”
