Psalm 84

1
How lovely is your dwelling place,
LORD Almighty!

2
My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the living God.

3
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,
LORD Almighty, my King and my God.

4
Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
they are ever praising you.

5
Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.

6
As they pass through the Valley of Baka,
they make it a place of springs;
the autumn rains also cover it with pools.

7
They go from strength to strength,
till each appears before God in Zion.

8
Hear my prayer, LORD God Almighty;
listen to me, God of Jacob.

9
Look on our shield, O God;
look with favor on your anointed one.

10
Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

11
For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.

12
LORD Almighty,
blessed is the one who trusts in you.
