Psalm 87
Berean Standard Bible Par ▾ 

The LORD Loves the Gates of Zion

A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A song.

1He has founded His city

on the holy mountains.a

2The LORD loves the gates of Zion

more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

3Glorious things are ascribed to you,

O city of God.


4“I will mention Rahabb and Babylon

among those who know Me—

along with Philistia, Tyre, and Cushc

when I say, ‘This one was born in Zion.’

5And it will be said of Zion:

“This one and that one were born in her,

and the Most High Himself will establish her.”

6The LORD will record in the register of the peoples:

“This one was born in Zion.”


7Singers and pipers will proclaim,

“All my springs of joy are in You.”
