The Privileges of Citizenship in Zion.
A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A Song.
1His foundation is in the holy mountains.
2 The Lord loves the gates of Zion
More than all the other dwelling places of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are spoken of you,
O city of God. [a]Selah.
4 “I shall mention [b]Rahab and Babylon [c]among those who know Me;
Behold, Philistia and Tyre with [d]Ethiopia:
‘This one was born there.’”
5 But of Zion it shall be said, “This one and that one were born in her”;
And the Most High Himself will establish her.
6 The Lord will count when He registers the peoples,
“This one was born there.” Selah.
7 Then those who sing as well as those who [e]play the flutes shall say,
“All my springs of joy are in you.”
