For the music director; [a]on the Gittith. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.
84 How lovely are Your dwelling places, Lord of armies! 2 My soul longed and even yearned for the courtyards of the Lord; My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God. 3 The bird also has found a house, And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may put her young: Your altars, Lord of armies, My King and my God. 4 Blessed are those who dwell in Your house! They are ever praising You. Selah
5 Blessed is the person whose strength is in You, In [b]whose heart are the roads to Zion! 6 Passing through the Valley of [c]Baca they make it a [d]spring; The early rain also covers it with blessings. 7 They go from strength to strength, [e]Every one of themappears before God in Zion.
8 Lord God of armies, hear my prayer; Listen, God of Jacob! Selah 9 See our shield, God, And look at the face of Your anointed. 10 For a day in Your courtyards is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God Than live in the tents of wickedness. 11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord gives grace and glory; He withholds no good thing [f]from those who walk with integrity. 12 Lord of armies, Blessed is the person who trusts in You!
