I will count Egypt and Babylon among those who know me—
also Philistia and Tyre, and even distant Ethiopia.
They have all become citizens of my city!
Regarding my city it will be said,
“Everyone enjoys the rights of citizenship there.”
And the Most High will personally bless this city.
When the Lord registers the nations, he will say,
“They have all become citizens of my city.”

The people will play flutes and sing,
“The source of my life springs from my city!”

Psalm 87.4-10
