Psalms 84

Longing for the Temple Worship.

For the choir director;
Or according to
on the Gittith. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.

How lovely are Your b dwelling places,
O  Lord of hosts!
My c soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the  Lord;
My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the d living God.
The bird also has found a house,
And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young,
Even Your e altars, O  Lord of hosts,
f My King and my God.
How g blessed are those who dwell in Your house!
They are h ever praising You.
Selah may mean: Pause, Crescendo or Musical interlude

How blessed is the man whose j strength is in You,
Lit their
whose heart are the l highways to Zion!
Passing through the valley of
Probably, Weeping; or Balsam trees
Baca they make it a
Or place of springs
The o early rain also covers it with blessings.
They p go from strength to strength,
Some ancient versions read The God of gods will be seen in Zion
Every one of them r appears before God in Zion.

O s  Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer;
Give ear, O t God of Jacob! Selah.
Behold our u shield, O God,
And look upon the face of v Your anointed.
10 For w a day in Your courts is better than a thousand outside.
I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God
Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11 For the  Lord God is x a sun and y shield;
The  Lord gives grace and z glory;
aa No good thing does He withhold
Lit with regard to
from those who walk
Lit with integrity
12 O  Lord of hosts,
How ad blessed is the man who trusts in You!
