Psalms 87

Thomson(i) 1 A Psalm of an Ode for the sons of Kore. On the holy mountains are his foundations! 2 The Lord loveth the gates of Sion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. 3 Glorious things have been said of thee, city of God. 4 Shall I mention Rahab or Babylon to those gaining a knowledge of me? Behold the Philistines and Tyrians, and the tribe of the Ethiopians say, Such and such were born there. 5 Man will say, "Sion is my mother;" and, "In it such a man was born." "The Most High himself founded it" 6 this will be the account which the Lord will give in the enrollment of peoples and of those chiefs who were born in it. 7 How delighted must all be; whose habitation is in thee!
