1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.
2 Jehovah loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God.
4 I will mention Rahab defamatory word for Egypta boaster (Isaiah 30:7) and Babylon among those who know me. Behold, Philistia and Tyre with 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 will establish her.«
6 Jehovah will count when he registers the peoples: »This one was born there.«
7 Then those who sing as well as those who play the flutes will say: »All my springs of joy are in you.«
