1. A psalm of the Korahites. A song. The LORD loves the city founded on holy mountains,
2. Loves the gates of Zion more than any dwelling in Jacob.
3. Glorious things are said of you, O city of God! Selah
4. From Babylon and Egypt I count those who acknowledge the LORD. Philistia, Ethiopia, Tyre, of them it can be said: "This one was born there."
5. But of Zion it must be said: "They all were born here." The Most High confirms this;
6. the Lord notes in the register of the peoples: "This one was born here." Selah
7. So all sing in their festive dance: "Within you is my true home."
