Psalm 84

How lovely is Your tabernacle,

​​O LORD of hosts!

2 ​​My soul longs, yes, even faints

​​For the courts of the LORD;

​​My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.

3 ​​Even the sparrow has found a home,

​​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 ​​Blessed are those who dwell in Your house;

​​They will still be praising You. Selah

5 ​​Blessed is the man whose strength is in You,

​​Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

6 ​​As they pass through the Valley of Baca,

​​They make it a spring;

​​The rain also covers it with pools.

7 ​​They go from strength to strength;

​​Each one appears before God in Zion.[fn]

8 ​​O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer;

​​Give ear, O God of Jacob!Selah

9 ​​O God, behold our shield,

​​And look upon the face of Your anointed.

10 ​​For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand.

​​I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God

​​Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

11 ​​For the LORD God is a sun and shield;

​​The LORD will give grace and glory;

​​No good thing will He withhold

​​From those who walk uprightly.

12 ​​O LORD of hosts,

​​Blessed is the man who trusts in You!
