Psalm 87

Psalm 87

A song. A psalm of the descendants of Korah.

On the holy mountain
    stands the city founded by the Lord.
He loves the city of Jerusalem
    more than any other city in Israel.[a]
O city of God,
    what glorious things are said of you! Interlude

I will count Egypt[b] and Babylon among those who know me—
    also Philistia and Tyre, and even distant Ethiopia.[c]
    They have all become citizens of Jerusalem!
Regarding Jerusalem[d] it will be said,
    “Everyone enjoys the rights of citizenship there.”
    And the Most High will personally bless this city.
When the Lord registers the nations, he will say,
    “They have all become citizens of Jerusalem.” Interlude

The people will play flutes[e] and sing,
    “The source of my life springs from Jerusalem!”
