1 The Lord loves the foundation which he has laid upon the holy hills;*
the gates of Zion are dearer to him than all the dwellings of Jacob.
2 Very excellent things are spoken of you,*
O city of God.
3 I will consider Egypt and Babylon*
among those who know me.
4 Behold Philistia also, and Tyre, with Ethiopia;*
each one was born in her.
5 And of Zion it shall be reported that each one was born in her,*
and the Most High shall establish her.
6 The Lord shall record it when he registers the people,*
that each one was born there.
7 The singers and the dancers also shall say,*
"All my fresh springs are in you."
