Psalms - Chapter 87


The King James Version Basic English Version (BBE)

1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.

1 <Of the sons of Korah. A Psalm. A Song.> This house is resting on the holy mountain.

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

2 The Lord has more love for the doors of Zion than for all the tents of Jacob.

3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.

3 Noble things are said of you, O town of God. (Selah.)

4 I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me: behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man was born there.

4 Rahab and Babylon will be named among those who have knowledge of me; see, Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man had his birth there.

5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.

5 And of Zion it will be said, This or that man had his birth there; and the Most High will make her strong.

6 The LORD shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.

6 The Lord will keep in mind, when he is writing the records of the people, that this man had his birth there. (Selah.)

7 As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee.

7 The players on instruments will be there, and the dancers will say, All my springs are in you.
