For the choir director; [a]on the Gittith. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.
84 How lovely are Your dwelling places, O Lord of hosts! 2 My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the Lord; My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God. 3 The bird also has found a house, 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 How blessed are those who dwell in Your house! They are ever praising You. [b]Selah.
5 How blessed is the man whose strength is in You, In [c]whose heart are the highways to Zion! 6 Passing through the valley of [d]Baca they make it a [e]spring; The early rain also covers it with blessings. 7 They go from strength to strength, [f]Every one of themappears before God in Zion.
8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah. 9 Behold our shield, O God, And look upon the face of Your anointed. 10 For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand outside. I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness. 11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold [g]from those who walk [h]uprightly. 12 O Lord of hosts, How blessed is the man who trusts in You!
