The Privileges of Citizenship in Zion.
A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A Song.
1 His foundation R2717 is in the holy mountains.
2 The LORD loves R2718 the gates of Zion
More than all the other dwelling places of Jacob.
3 Glorious R2719 things are spoken of you,
O city R2720 of God. Selah. F928
4 "I shall mention Rahab R2721 F929 and Babylon among F930 those who know Me;
Behold, Philistia and Tyre R2722 with Ethiopia: R2723 F931
`This one was born there.' "
5 But of Zion it shall be said, "This one and that one were born in her";
And the Most High Himself will establish R2724 her.
6 The LORD will count when He registers R2725 the peoples,
"This one was born there." Selah.
7 Then those who sing R2726 as well as those who play R2727 F932 the flutes shall say,
"All my springs R2728 of joy are in you."
