Psalms - Chapter 84

1

For the director of music. According to gittith. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm. How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty!


2

My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.


3

Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young-- a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God.


4

Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. Selah


5

Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.


6

As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools.


7

They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.


8

Hear my prayer, O LORD God Almighty; listen to me, O God of Jacob. Selah


9

Look upon our shield, O God; look with favor on your anointed one.


10

Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.


11

For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.


12

O LORD Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you.
