Psalm 87:1-7 and Zechariah 8:20-23
1 A Canticle Psalm to the sons of Korah. Its foundations are in the holy mountains:
2 the Lord loves the gates of Zion above all the tabernacles of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are being said of you, 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 have been there.
5 Will not Zion say that this man and that man were born in her? And the Most High himself has founded her.
6 The Lord will explain, in the writings of peoples and of leaders, about those who have been in her.
7 For so the dwelling place within you is with all rejoicing.
20 Thus says the Lord of hosts, then the people may arrive and dwell in many cities,
21 and the inhabitants may hurry, one saying to another: "Let us go and entreat the face of the Lord, and let us seek the Lord of hosts. I will go also."
22 And many peoples and strong nations will approach, seeking the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to entreat the face of the Lord.
23 Thus says the Lord of hosts: In those days, then, ten men from every language of the Gentiles will grasp and cling to the hem of one man of Judea, saying: "We will go with you. For we have heard that God is with you."
