1 A psalm of the descendants of Korah. A song. On the holy mountain stands the city founded by the LORD.

2 He loves the city of Jerusalem more than any other city in Israel.*1

3 O city of God, what glorious things are said of you! Interlude

4 I will record Egypt* and Babylon among those who know me-- also Philistia and Tyre, and even distant Ethiopia.* They have all become citizens of Jerusalem!2

5 And it will be said of Jerusalem,* "Everyone has become a citizen here." And the Most High will personally bless this city.3

6 When the LORD registers the nations, he will say, "This one has become a citizen of Jerusalem." Interlude

7 At all the festivals, the people will sing, "The source of my life is in Jerusalem!"
