Psalm 84a

For the director of music. According to gittith.b Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.

How lovely is your dwelling place,p

Lord Almighty!

My soul yearns,q even faints,

for the courts of the Lord;

my heart and my flesh cry out

for the living God.r

Even the sparrow has found a home,

and the swallow a nest for herself,

where she may have her young—

a place near your altar,s

Lord Almighty,t my Kingu and my God.v

Blessed are those who dwell in your house;

they are ever praising you.c

Blessed are those whose strengthw is in you,

whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.x

As they pass through the Valley of Baka,

they make it a place of springs;y

the autumnz rains also cover it with pools.d

They go from strength to strength,a

till each appearsb before God in Zion.c

Hear my prayer,d Lord God Almighty;

listen to me, God of Jacob.

Look on our shield,e e O God;

look with favor on your anointed one.f

10 Better is one day in your courts

than a thousand elsewhere;

I would rather be a doorkeeperg in the house of my God

than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

11 For the Lord God is a sunh and shield;i

the Lord bestows favor and honor;

no good thing does he withholdj

from those whose walk is blameless.

12 Lord Almighty,

blessedk is the one who trusts in you.
