3O city of God, what glorious things are said of you! Interlude3Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. Selah.
4I will count Egypt and Babylon among those who know me— also Philistia and Tyre, and even distant Ethiopia. They have all become citizens of Jerusalem!4"I shall mention Rahab and Babylon among those who know Me; Behold, Philistia and Tyre with Ethiopia: 'This one was born there.'"
5Regarding Jerusalem it will be said, “Everyone enjoys the rights of citizenship there.” And the Most High will personally bless this city.5But of Zion it shall be said, "This one and that one were born in her"; And the Most High Himself will establish her.

7The people will play flutes and sing, “The source of my life springs from Jerusalem!”7Then those who sing as well as those who play the flutes shall say, "All my springs of joy are in you."
