Psalm 84:1-12 (NIV)

For the director of music. According to gittith. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.

1     How lovely is your dwelling place,

O Lord Almighty!

2     My soul yearns, even faints,

for the courts of the Lord;

my heart and my flesh cry out

for the living God.

3     Even the sparrow has found a home,

and the swallow a nest for herself,

where she may have her young—

a place near your altar,

O Lord Almighty, my King and my God.

4     Blessed are those who dwell in your house;

they are ever praising you.     Selah

5     Blessed are those whose strength is in you,

who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.

6     As they pass through the Valley of Baca,

they make it a place of springs;

the autumn rains also cover it with pools.

7     They go from strength to strength,

till each appears before God in Zion.

8     Hear my prayer, O Lord God Almighty;

listen to me, O God of Jacob.     Selah

9     Look upon our shield, O God;

look with favor on your anointed one.

10     Better is one day in your courts

than a thousand elsewhere;

I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God

than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

11     For the Lord God is a sun and shield;

the Lord bestows favor and honor;

no good thing does he withhold

from those whose walk is blameless.

12     O Lord Almighty,

blessed is the man who trusts in you.
