Psalm 84 New King James Version

Longing for God's House

84 1  To the Chief Musician. On an instrument of Gath. A Psalm of the sons of Korah. How lovely is Your tabernacle, O Lord of hosts! 2  My soul longs, yes, 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 lay her young-- Even Your altars, O Lord of hosts, My King and my God. 4  Blessed are those who dwell in Your house; They will still be praising You. Selah 5  Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage. 6  As they pass through the Valley of Baca, They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools. 7  They go from strength to strength; Each one appears before God in Zion.

8  O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah 9  O God, behold our shield, And look upon the face of Your anointed. 10  For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness. 11  For 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. 12  O Lord of hosts, Blessed is the man who trusts in You!
