Psalms Chapter 84 – Blessedness of communion with God. (To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.)

1 How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!


2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.


3 Yea, the sparrow hath found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King, and my God.


4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house; they will be still praising thee. Selah.


5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.


6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.


7 They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.


8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.


9 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. I had 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; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.


12 O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
