1. He himself has built it in his holy mountain;
2. the Lord prefers the gates of Zion to all of Jacob's towns.
3. Great things have been foretold of you, O city of God:
4. Between friends we speak of Egypt and Babylon; and also Philistia, Tyre, Ethiopia: "Here so-and-so was born."
5. But of Zion it shall be said, "More and more are being born in her." For the Most High himself has founded her.
6. And the Lord notes in the people's register: "All these were also born in Zion."
7. And all will dance and sing joyfully for you.
