King James Version

Psalm 87

1His foundation is in the holy mountains.

The Lord loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.

I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me: behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man was born there.

And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.

The Lord shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.

As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee.

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.”
