Book of Psalms

The Douay-Rheims Bible


Chapter 86

1    For the sons of Core, a psalm of a canticle. The foundations thereof are in the holy mountains:
2    The Lord loveth the gates of Sion above all the tabernacles of Jacob.
3    Glorious things are said of thee, O city of God.
4    I will be mindful of Rahab and of Babylon knowing me. Behold the foreigners, and Tyre, and the people of the Ethiopians, these were there.
5    Shall not Sion say: This man and that man is born in her? and the Highest himself hath founded her.
6    The Lord shall tell in his writings of peoples and of princes, of them that have been in her.
7    The dwelling in thee is as it were of all rejoicing.
