On the holy mount stands the city he founded; 2 the Lord loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwelling places of Jacob. 3 Glorious things of You are spoken, O city of God. Selah 4 Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon; behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Cush; “This one was born there,”, they say. 5 And of Zion it shall be said, “This one and that one were born in her”: for the Most High Himself will establish her. 6 The Lord records as he registers the peoples, “This one was born there”. Selah 7 Singers and dancers alike say, “All my springs are in You”.
