(Selah.) 4: Rahab and Babylon will be named among those who have knowledge of me; see, Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man had his birth there. 5: And of Zion it will be said, This or that man had his birth there; and the Most High will make her strong. 6: The Lord will keep in mind, when he is writing the records of the people, that this man had his birth there. (Selah.) 7: The players on instruments will be there, and the dancers will say, All my springs are in you.
