To the Overcomer upon Gittith, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.

¶ How amiable are thy habitations, O LORD of the hosts!

My soul longs, and even faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh sing to the living God.

Even the sparrow has found a house and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young upon thine altars, O LORD of the hosts, my King and my God.

Happy are those that dwell in thy house; they shall continually praise thee. Selah.

Happy is the man whose strength is in thee, in whose heart are thy ways,

who passing through the valley of Baca, shall make it a well; the rain also shall fill the pools.

They go forth in a great multitude; and in order, they shall see God in Zion.

¶ O LORD God of the hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.

Behold, O God our shield and look upon the face of thine anointed,

10 for a day in thy courts is better than a thousand outside of them. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield unto us; the LORD will give grace and glory; he will not withhold good from those that walk uprightly.

12 O LORD of the hosts, happy is the man that trusts in thee.
