Psalm 84

The Joy of Worship in the Temple

To the leader: according to The Gittith. Of the Korahites. A Psalm.

1

How lovely is your dwelling place,

O Lord of hosts!

2

My soul longs, indeed it faints

for the courts of the Lord;

my heart and my 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

Happy are those who live in your house,

ever singing your praise.Selah

 

5

Happy 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;

the God of gods will be seen 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 live in the tents of wickedness.

11

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;

he bestows favor and honor.

No good thing does the Lord withhold

from those who walk uprightly.

12

O Lord of hosts,

happy is everyone who trusts in you.
