Longing for the Temple Worship.
For the choir director; on the Gittith. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.
1How lovely are Thy dwelling places,
2My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the LORD;
3The bird also has found a house,
4How blessed are those who dwell in Thy house!
5How blessed is the man whose strength is in Thee;
6Passing through the valley of Baca, they make it a spring,
7They go from strength to strength,
8O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer;
9Behold our shield, O God,
10For a day in Thy courts is better than a thousand outside.
11For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
12O LORD of hosts,
