Psalm 84

Psalm 84

To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.
1How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!
2My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD:
My heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
3Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young,
Even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
4Blessed are they that dwell in thy house:
They will be still praising thee. Selah.
5Blessed is the man whose strength is
in thee; In whose heart are the ways of them.
6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well;
The rain also filleth the pools.
7They go from strength to strength,
Every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
8O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer:
Give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.
9Behold, O God our shield,
And look upon the face of thine anointed.
10For a day in thy courts
Is better than a thousand.
I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God,
Than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11For the LORD God is a sun and shield:
The LORD will give grace and glory: No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
12O LORD of hosts,
Blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
