Psalms 84

Longing for the Temple Worship.

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

1 How lovely are Your b  dwelling places,
O  Lord of hosts!
2My 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.
3The 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.
4How g  blessed are those who dwell in Your house!
They are h  ever praising You.
Selah may mean: Pause, Crescendo or Musical interlude

5How blessed is the man whose j  strength is in You,
Lit their
whose heart are the l  highways to Zion!
6Passing 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.
7They 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.

8O s   Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer;
Give ear, O t  God of Jacob! Selah.
9Behold our u  shield, O God,
And look upon the face of v  Your anointed.
10For 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.
11For 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
12O  Lord of hosts,
How ad  blessed is the man who trusts in You!
