1 He has founded his city on the holy mountain.

2 The LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the other dwellings of Jacob.

3 Glorious things are said of you, city of God: [^1]

4 "I will record Rahab "and Babylon among those who acknowledge me — Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush "— and will say, 'This one was born in Zion.'" [^4]

5 Indeed, of Zion it will be said, "This one and that one were born in her, and the Most High himself will establish her."

6 The LORD will write in the register of the peoples: "This one was born in Zion."

7 As they make music they will sing, "All my fountains are in you."
