Psalm 87

The LORD Loves the Gates of Zion

A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A song.

1He has founded His city

on the holy mountains. a 

2 The LORD loves the gates of Zion

more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

3 Glorious things are ascribed to you,

O city of God.


4 “I will mention Rahab b and Babylon

among those who know Me—

along with Philistia, Tyre, and Cush c —

when I say, ‘This one was born in Zion.’ ”

5 And it will be said of Zion:

“This one and that one were born in her,

and the Most High Himself will establish her.”

6 The LORD will record in the register of the peoples:

“This one was born in Zion.”


7 Singers and pipers will proclaim,

“All my springs of joy are in You.”



1 a Literally His foundation is on the holy mountains
4 b Rahab is a poetic name for Egypt.
4 c That is, the upper Nile region
