Psalm 84Names of God Bible (NOG)
For the choir director; on the gittith; a psalm by Korah’s descendants.
1 Your dwelling place is lovely, O Yahweh Tsebaoth!
2 My soul longs and yearns
for Yahweh’s courtyards.
My whole body shouts for joy to El Chay.
3 Even sparrows find a home,
and swallows find a nest for themselves.
There they hatch their young
near your altars, O Yahweh Tsebaoth,
my Melek and my Elohim.
4 Blessed are those who live in your house.
They are always praising you. Selah
5 Blessed are those who find strength in you.
Their hearts are on the road that leads to you.
6 As they pass through a valley where balsam trees grow,
they make it a place of springs.
The early rains cover it with blessings.
7 Their strength grows as they go along
until each one of them appears
in front of Elohim in Zion.
8 O Yahweh Elohim Tsebaoth, hear my prayer.
Open your ears, O Elohim of Jacob. Selah
9 Look at our shield, O Elohim.
Look with favor on the face of your anointed one.
10 One day in your courtyards is better than a thousand anywhere else.
I would rather stand in the entrance to my Elohim’s house
than live inside wicked people’s homes.
11 Yahweh Elohim is a sun and Magen.
Yahweh grants favor and honor.
He does not hold back any blessing
from those who live innocently.
12 O Yahweh Tsebaoth, blessed is the person who trusts you.
