Psalm 84

My Soul Longs for the Courts of the Lord
To the choirmaster: according to #Ps. 8, title; 81, title The Gittith.#84:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term A Psalm of #Ps. 42, titlethe Sons of Korah.
1How #[Ps. 27:4] lovely is your #Ps. 43:3; 132:5dwelling place,
O Lord of hosts!
2My soul #[Ps. 42:1, 2; 63:1] longs, yes, #[Ps. 73:26; 119:81; 143:6; Job 19:27] faints
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and flesh sing for joy
to #See Ps. 42:2the living God.
3Even 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,
# Ps. 5:2 my King and my God.
4 # See Ps. 65:4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house,
ever #Ps. 42:5, 11; 43:5singing your praise! Selah
5Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
# [Ps. 122:1] in whose heart are the highways to Zion.#84:5 Hebrew lacks to Zion
6As they go through the Valley of Baca
they make it a place of springs;
# Joel 2:23 the early rain also covers it with #Ezek. 34:26pools.
7They go #Prov. 4:18; Isa. 40:31; [John 1:16; 2 Cor. 3:18] from strength to strength;
each one #See Ps. 42:2appears before God in Zion.
8O #See Ps. 59:5Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer;
give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah
9 # Ps. 80:14 Behold our #See Ps. 3:3shield, O God;
look on the face of your anointed!
10For a day #ver. 2 in your courts is better
than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be #1 Chr. 26:19a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11For the Lord God is #Isa. 60:19, 20; See Ps. 27:1; Mal. 4:2; Rev. 21:23 a sun and #[See ver. 9 above] shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor.
# Ps. 85:12; [Ps. 34:9, 10; Matt. 6:33; 7:11] No good thing does he withhold
from those who #Ps. 15:2; Prov. 2:7walk uprightly.
12O Lord of hosts,
# See Ps. 2:12 blessed is the one who trusts in you!
