Psalm 87

Glorious Things of You Are Spoken

A song. A psalm of the descendants of Korah.

1 On the holy mountain
stands the city founded by the Lord .
2 He loves the city of Jerusalem
more than any other city in Israel. 1
3 O city of God,
what glorious things are said of you!

4 I will count Egypt 2 and Babylon among those who know me -
also Philistia and Tyre, and even distant Ethiopia. 3
They have all become citizens of Jerusalem!
5 Regarding Jerusalem 4 it will be said,
“Everyone enjoys the rights of citizenship there.”
And the Most High will personally bless this city.
6 When the Lord registers the nations, he will say,
“They have all become citizens of Jerusalem.”

7 The people will play flutes 5 and sing,
“The source of my life springs from Jerusalem!”
