Blessed Is the Man Who Trusts in You

For the choir director. According to the [a]Gittith. Of the sons of Korah. A Psalm.

84 How lovely are Your (A)dwelling places,
O Yahweh of hosts!
My (B)soul has longed and even [b]fainted for the courts of Yahweh;
My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the (C)living God.
Even the bird has found a home,
And the swallow a nest for herself, where she sets her young,
At Your (D)altars, O Yahweh of hosts,
(E)My King and my God.
How (F)blessed are those who dwell in Your house!
They are (G)ever praising You. [c]Selah.

How blessed is the man whose (H)strength is in You,
In [d]whose heart are the (I)highways to Zion!
Passing through the valley of [e]Baca they make it a [f]spring;
The (J)early rain also wraps it up with blessings.
They (K)go from strength to strength,
[g]Each one of them (L)appears before God in Zion.

O (M)Yahweh God of hosts, hear my prayer;
Give ear, O (N)God of Jacob! Selah.
See our (O)shield, O God,
And look upon the face of (P)Your anointed.
10 For (Q)better is a day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere.
I would choose to stand at the threshold of the house of my God
Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11 For Yahweh God is (R)a sun and (S)shield;
Yahweh gives grace and (T)glory;
(U)No good thing does He withhold [h]from those who walk blamelessly.
12 O Yahweh of hosts,
How (V)blessed is the man who trusts in You!
