Psalm 84
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. ON THE GITTITH. A PSALM OF THE SONS OF KORAH. How beloved Your dwelling places, YHWH of Hosts!

2My soul desired, indeed, it has also been consumed, "" For the courts of YHWH, "" My heart and my flesh cry aloud to the living God,

3Even a sparrow has found a house, "" And a swallow a nest for herself, "" Where she has placed her brood—Your altars, O YHWH of Hosts, "" My king and my God.

4O the blessedness of those inhabiting Your house, "" Yet they praise You. Selah.

5O the blessedness of a man whose strength is in You, "" Highways [are] in their heart.

6Those passing through a valley of weeping make it a spring, "" The early rain covers it with pools.

7They go from strength to strength, "" He appears to God in Zion.

8O YHWH, God of Hosts, hear my prayer, "" Give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.

9Our shield, see, O God, "" And behold the face of Your anointed,

10For a day in Your courts [is] good, O Teacher! I have chosen rather to be at the threshold, "" In the house of my God, "" Than to dwell in tents of wickedness.

11For YHWH God [is] a sun and a shield, "" YHWH gives grace and glory. He does not withhold good "" To those walking in uprightness.

12YHWH of Hosts! O the blessedness of a man trusting in You.
