Psalms 87

Psalm 871

Written by the Korahites; a psalm, a song.

87:1 The Lord’s city is in the holy hills.2

87:2 The Lord loves the gates of Zion

more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.

87:3 People say wonderful things about you,3

O city of God. (Selah)

87:4 I mention Rahab4 and Babylon to my followers.5

Here are6 Philistia and Tyre,7 along with Ethiopia.8

It is said of them, “This one was born there.”9

87:5 But it is said of Zion’s residents,10

“Each one of these11 was born in her,

and the sovereign One12 makes her secure.”13

87:6 The Lord writes in the census book of the nations,14

“This one was born there.”15 (Selah)

87:7 As for the singers, as well as the pipers –

all of them sing within your walls.16
