Psalm 87                                                                                                    Thursday Morning 3

                        O city founded by him on the holy mountains, * Yahweh loves you, gates of Zion.

                        He who made perfect the glorious dwellings of Jacob * speaks in you, city of God:

“I shall inscribe Egypt and Babylon * among those who acknowledge me,

    even Philistia, Tyre and Ethiopia: * ‘This one was born there.’”

        But of Zion it will be said: * “Each and every one was born in it, * and the Most High will make it secure.”

    Yahweh will write down in the register of the peoples, * “This one was born there.”

And all who have suffered in you * will sing and dance.


To Isaiah 40
