Book III
The Privileges of Citizenship in Zion
A Psalm of the sons of Korah; a Song.
[1]  HIS 1 foundation is in the holy mountains.
[2]  Jehovah loveth the gates of Zion
More than all the dwellings of Jacob.
[3]  Glorious things are spoken of thee,
O city of God.  [Selah
[4]  I will make mention of Rahab 2 and Babylon as among them that know me:
Behold, Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia: 3
This one was born there.
[5]  Yea, of Zion it shall be said, This one and that one was born in her;
And the Most High himself will establish her.
[6]  Jehovah will count, when he writeth up the peoples,
This one was born there.  [Selah
[7]  They that sing as well as they 4 that dance shall say,
All my fountains are in thee.

Note 2. Or, Egypt. [back]
Note 3. Heb. Cush. [back]
