The Message

Psalm 87

A Korah Psalm

11-3 He founded Zion on the Holy Mountain—
    and oh, how God loves his home!
Loves it far better than all
    the homes of Jacob put together!
God’s hometown—oh!
    everyone there is talking about you!

I name them off, those among whom I’m famous:
    Egypt and Babylon,
    also Philistia,
    even Tyre, along with Cush.
Word’s getting around; they point them out:
    “This one was born again here!”

The word’s getting out on Zion:
    “Men and women, right and left,
    get born again in her!”

God registers their names in his book:
    “This one, this one, and this one—
    born again, right here.”

Singers and dancers give credit to Zion:
    “All my springs are in you!”

Zabbuli 87

Zabbuli ya Batabani ba Koola. Oluyimba.

1Atadde emisingi gye ku lusozi olutukuvu.
    Mukama ayagala emiryango gya Sayuuni
    okusinga ennyumba zonna eza Yakobo.

Ebintu eby’ekitiibwa bikwogerwako,
    ggwe ekibuga kya Katonda.
“Mu mawanga ge mmanyi mwe muli Lakabu,
    ne Babulooni;
era ndyogera ku Bufirisuuti, ne ku Ttuulo
    ne ku Esiyopya nti, ‘Ono yazaalirwa mu Sayuuni.’ ”
Bwe baliba boogera ku Sayuuni baligamba nti,
    “Ono n’oli baazaalirwa omwo,”
    n’oyo Ali Waggulu Ennyo alikinyweza.
Mukama aliwandiika mu kitabo bw’ati,
    omuli amannya g’abantu nti, “Ono yazaalibwa omwo.”

Banaakubanga ebivuga nga bwe bayimba nti,
    “Ensulo zange zonna ziri mu ggwe.”
