PSALM 84

« Psalm 83 | Psalm 84 | Psalm 85 »

My Soul Longs for the Courts of the Lord
To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.
84:1
How lovely is your dwelling place,
O Lord of hosts!
2
My soul longs, yes, faints
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and flesh sing for joy
to the living God.

3
Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young,
at your altars, O Lord of hosts,
my King and my God.
4
Blessed are those who dwell in your house,
ever singing your praise! Selah

5
Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
in whose heart are the highways to Zion.
6
As they go through the Valley of Baca
they make it a place of springs;
the early rain also covers it with pools.
7
They go from strength to strength;
each one appears before God in Zion.

8
O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer;
give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah
9
Behold our shield, O God;
look on the face of your anointed!

10
For a day in your courts is better
than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does he withhold
from those who walk uprightly.
12
O Lord of hosts,
blessed is the one who trusts in you!
