Psalms 84

For the Chief Musician; set to the Gittith. A Psalm of the sons of Korah. How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Jehovah of hosts!
1) Or lovely
My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of Jehovah; My heart and my flesh cry out unto the living God.
1) Or sing for joy
Yea, the sparrow hath found her a house, And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, Even thine altars, O Jehovah of hosts, My King, and my God. Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: They will be still praising thee. [[Selah Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; In whose heart are the highways to Zion . Passing through the valley of Weeping they make it a place of springs; Yea, the early rain covereth it with blessings.
1) Or balsam-trees ; Heb Baca ; See 2 Sa 5:23
They go from strength to strength; Every one of them appeareth before God in Zion.

O Jehovah God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob. [[Selah Behold, O God our shield, And look upon the face of thine anointed.
1) Or Behold our shield, O God
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.
1) Or stand at the threshold of etc
11 For Jehovah God is a sun and a shield: Jehovah will give grace and glory; No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. 12 O Jehovah of hosts, Blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
