Psalm 87:1
Context
His Foundation is in the Holy Mountains

1His foundation is in the holy mountains. 2The LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. 3Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. Selah. 4I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me: behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man was born there. 5And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her. 6The LORD shall count, when he writes up the people, that this man was born there. Selah. 7As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in you.
