Psalm 84 The Blessedness of Dwelling in the House of God To the Chief Musician. On [E]An Instrument of Gath. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. 84 1How lovely [F]is Your tabernacle, O Lord of hosts! 2My soul longs, yes, even faints For the courts of the Lord; My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. 3Even the sparrow has found a home, And the swallow a nest for herself, Where she may lay her young— Even Your altars, O Lord of hosts, My King and my God. 4Blessed are those who dwell in Your house; They will still be praising You.Selah 5Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage. 6As they pass through the Valley of [G]Baca, They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with [H]pools. 7They go from strength to strength; [I]Each one appears before God in Zion. 8O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob!Selah 9O God, behold our shield, And look upon the face of Your [J]anointed. 10For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather [K]be a doorkeeper in the house of my God Than 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 those who walk uprightly. 12O Lord of hosts, Blessed is the man who trusts in You!
