The Soul Longs for The LORD
To the director; [2for 3the 4wine vats 5to the 6sons 7of Korah 1a psalm].1How beloved are your tents, O lord of the forces. 2[2longs after 3and 4falters 1My soul] for the courtyards of the lord. My heart and my flesh exulted over the living God. 3For even the sparrow finds for himself a house; and the turtle-dove a nest for herself, where she puts her own nestlings, even your altars, O lord of the forces, my king and my God. 4Blessed are the ones dwelling in your house; into the eons of the eons they shall praise you. PAUSE. 5Blessed is the man in whom is the assistance to him from you; [4ascending 1in 2his heart 3he ordained]; 6into the valley of the place of weeping; into the place which he put himself. For even [4a blessing 3will give 1the one 2establishing law]. 7They shall go from force to force; they shall see the God of gods in Zion. 8O lord, the God of the forces, listen to my prayer! Give ear, O God of Jacob! PAUSE. 9[4our defender 1Behold 2O 3God], and look into the face of your anointed one. 10For better is [2day 1one] in your courtyards than thousands. I would choose to be thrown aside in the house of my God, rather than for me to live among the tents of sinners. 11For [2mercy 3and 4truth 1the lord loves]. God [2favor 3and 4glory 1shall give]. The lord will not deprive good things to the ones going in innocence. 12O lord, the God of the forces, blessed is the man hoping upon you.
