International Standard Version
1God's foundation is in the holy mountains.
2The LORD loves the gates of Zion more than the dwellings of Jacob.
3Glorious things are spoken about you, city of God. Interlude
4I will mention Rahab and Babylon among those who acknowledge me— including Philistia, Tyre, and Ethiopia — "This one was born there," they say.
5Indeed, about Zion it will be said: "More than one person was born in it," and "The Most High himself did it."
6The LORD will record, as he registers the peoples, "This one was born there." Interlude
7Then singers, as they play their instruments, will declare, "All my roots are in you."
