1 A Psalm of a Song for the sons of Core.
His foundations are in the holy mountains. 2 The Lord loves the gates of Sion, more than all the tabernacles of Jacob. 3 Glorious things have been spoken of thee, O city of God. Pause.
4 I will make mention of Raab and Babylon to them that know me: behold also the Philistines, and Tyre, and the people of the Ethiopians: these were born there. 5 A man shall say, Sion is my mother; and such a man was born in her; and the Highest himself has founded her. 6 The Lord shall recount it in the writing of the people, and of these princes that * Gr. have been in her.were born in her. Pause. 7 The dwelling of all within thee is as the dwelling of those that rejoice.
*86:6 Gr. have been in her.
