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 [^2] and Babylon among those who acknowledge me — ¶ Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush [^3] — ¶ 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."
