Salme 87

Jerusalem—Guds by og hans folks hjem

1En sang af Koras slægt.

Han grundlagde sin by på de hellige høje.
Ja, Herren elsker Zions stad
    langt mere end andre byer i Israel.
Jerusalem, du er Guds egen by,
    der siges mange herlige ting om dig.
I Egypten og Babylonien,
    i filistrenes land, i Tyrus og Kush
er der folk, der kender Gud
    og føler, at Jerusalem er deres hjem.
I Jerusalem siger man til hinanden:
„Vi hører alle til på dette sted,
    og den Almægtige tager hånd om sin by.”
Herren fører regnskab over alle mennesker,
    og noterer dem, der hører Jerusalem til.
De danser af glæde, mens de lovpriser byen:
    „Du er alt, hvad vi har brug for.”

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 87

Psalm 87

A psalm of the Sons of Korah. A song.

The Lord has built his city
    on the holy mountain.
He loves the city of Zion
    more than all the other places
    where the people of Jacob live.
City of God,
    the Lord says glorious things about you.
He says, “I will include Egypt and Babylon
    in a list of nations who recognize me as king.
I will also include Philistia and Tyre, along with Cush.
    I will say about them, ‘They were born in Zion.’ ”

Certainly it will be said about Zion,
    “This nation and that nation were born in it.
    The Most High God himself will make it secure.”
Here is what the Lord will write in his list of the nations.
    “Each of them was born in Zion.”
As they make music they will sing,
    “Zion, all our blessings come from you.”
