Psalms 84:1-12

(Of the Director; to the Gittith; of the sons of Korah; a psalm.) 84  How lovable your dwelling-places are, Jehovah of Armies! 2  My soul yearns, yes, breaks down with its eagerness for Jehovah’s courts; my heart and flesh shout toward living Deity. 3  Even a little bird has found a house, and a swallow a nest for herself, That has placed her brood by your altars, Jehovah of Armies, my King and my God. 4  Happy those who live at your house; they will keep praising you. (Selah) 5**  Happy are men who have strength in you, who have highways at heart, 6*  Those who pass through Baca Vale making it a region of springs, even pools that fall rain overspreads. 7**  They go on from good times to good times; Deity, God, is to be seen at Sion. 8  Jehovah, God, Armies, hear my prayer; [Selah] give ear, God of Jacob: 9  See our shield, God, and look at the face of your anointed. 10*  For a day in your courts is better than a thousand; I had rather be at the threshold of the house of my God than lodge in tents of wickedness. 11  For our God Jehovah is a sun and shield; Jehovah will give grace and glory, will not withhold good from those who go by a good conscience. 12  Jehovah of Armies, happy the man that puts confidence in you.
