Psalm 87 grabbed my attention this week. It begins speaking about Jerusalem as Mount Zion—the Holy City of God’s people the Jews. But then comes the twist—the enemies of the Jews throughout OT history are recorded as acknowledging God and Zion. Rachel (symbolic of Egypt) and Babylon (who took the Jews captive) acknowledge God! People from all over the world are born in Zion (saved). The climax is the testimony song of the Gentiles “All my fountains are in you.” Everything that brings real joy and life comes from knowing the King of the Jews—Jesus.
