"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 u establish her.
6 The Lord records as he v registers the peoples,
"This one was born there." Selah

7 w Singers and x dancers alike say,
"All my y springs are in you."
