Psalm 84

LONGING FOR GOD’S HOUSE

For the choir director: on the Gittith.b A psalm of the sons of Korah.

How lovely is your dwelling place,

Lord of Armies.c

I long and yearn

for the courts of the Lord;

my heart and flesh cry out forA the living God.d

Even a sparrow finds a home,

and a swallow, a nest for herself

where she places her young—

near your altars, Lord of Armies,

my King and my God.e

How happy are those who reside in your house,

who praise you continually.f

Selah

Happy are the people whose strength is in you,

whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.g

As they pass through the Valley of Baca,B

they make it a source of spring water;

even the autumn rain will cover it with blessings.C,h

They go from strength to strength;

each appears before God in Zion.i

Lord God of Armies, hear my prayer;

listen, God of Jacob.j

Selah

Consider our shield,D God;k

look on the face of your anointed one.l

10 Better a day in your courts

than a thousand anywhere else.

I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God

than live in the tents of wicked people.m

11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield.n

The Lord grants favor and honor;

he does not withhold the good

from those who live with integrity.o

12 Happy is the person who trusts in you,

Lord of Armies!p

About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
