Chapter 84

1


 

   For the Chief Musician; set to the Gittith. A Psalm of the sons of Korah. How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Jehovah of hosts!  

 

 


2


 

  My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of Jehovah; My heart and my flesh cry out unto the living God.  

 

 


3


 

  Yea, the sparrow hath found her a house, And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, Even thine altars, O Jehovah of hosts, My King, and my God.  

 

 


4


 

  Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: They will be still praising thee. Selah  

 

 


5


 

  Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; In whose heart are the highways [to Zion].  

 

 


6


 

  Passing through the valley of Weeping they make it a place of springs; Yea, the early rain covereth it with blessings.  

 

 


7


 

  They go from strength to strength; Every one of them appeareth before God in Zion.  

 

 


8


 

  O Jehovah God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah  

 

 


9


 

  Behold, O God our shield, And look upon the face of thine anointed.  

 

 


10


 

  For 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.  

 

 


11


 

  For Jehovah God is a sun and a shield: Jehovah will give grace and glory; No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.  

 

 


12


 

  O Jehovah of hosts, Blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
