Psalm 87. Fundamenta ejus.
HER foundations are upon the holy hills: * the LORD loveth the gates of Sion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
2 Very excellent things are spoken of thee, * thou city of God.
3 I will make mention of Egypt and Babylon, * among them that know me.
4 Behold, Philistia also; and Tyre, with Ethiopia; * lo, in Sion were they born.
5 Yea, of Sion it shall be reported, this one and that one were born in her; * and the Most High shall stablish her.
6 The LORD shall record it, when he writeth up the peoples; * lo, in Sion were they born.
7 The singers also and trumpeters shall make answer: * All my fresh springs are in thee.
