Psalm 84

2 How lovely is your dwelling place,

 O LORD of hosts.

 3 My soul is longing and yearning

 for the courts of the LORD.

 My heart and my flesh cry out

 to the living God.

4 Even the sparrow finds a home,

 and the swallow a nest for herself

 in which she sets her young, at your altars,

 O LORD of hosts, my king and my God.

5 Blessed are they who dwell in your house,

 forever singing your praise.

 6 Blessed the people whose strength is in you,

 whose heart is set on pilgrim ways.

7 As they go through the Baca Valley,

 they make it a place of springs;

 the autumn rain covers it with pools.

 8 They walk with ever-growing strength;

 the God of gods will appear in Sion.

9 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer;

 give ear, O God of Jacob.

 10 Turn your eyes, O God, our shield;

 look on the face of your anointed.

11 One day within your courts

 is better than a thousand elsewhere.

 The threshold of the house of God

 I prefer to the dwellings of the wicked.

12 For the LORD God is a sun, a shield;

 the LORD will give us his favor and glory.

 He will not withhold any good

 to those who walk without blame.

 13 O LORD of hosts, how blessed

 is the man who trusts in you!
