1How lovely are Your dwelling places, O יהוה of hosts!
2My being has longed, and even fainted, For the courts of יהוה; My heart and my flesh cry out for the living Ěl.
3Even the sparrow has found a home, And the swallow a nest for herself, Where she has put her young ones – Your slaughter-places, O יהוה of hosts, My Sovereign and my Elohim.
4Blessed are those who dwell in Your house, They are ever praising You. Selah.
5Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Your Highways are in their heart.
6Passing through the valley of weeping, They make it a fountain; The Teacher also covers it with blessings.
7They go from strength to strength, Appearing before Elohim in Tsiyon.
8O יהוה Elohim of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O Elohim of Ya‛aqoḇ! Selah.
9O Elohim, see our shield, And look upon the face of Your anointed.
10For a day in Your courts Is better than a thousand days. I have chosen rather to be a doorkeeper In the House of my Elohim, Than to dwell in the tents of the wrong.
11For יהוה Elohim is a sun and a shield; יהוה gives favour and esteem; He withholds no good matter From those who walk blamelessly.
12O יהוה of hosts, Blessed is the man who trusts in You!
