THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 84 ©
The prophet pours out the grief of his heart that he could not enjoy the assemblies of the faithful, declaring the happy condition of such as did and could; wishing and praying that he might again appear among them.
To the 1chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.
HOW amiableaare 2thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!
Myb soul longeth, 3yea, even fainteth for 4the courts of the LORD: 5my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even 6thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
Blessed are they that 7dwell in thy house: they will be 8still praising thee. 9Selah.
Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; 10in whose heart are the ways of them.
Who passing through 11the valley 12of Baca 13make it a well; the rain also 14filleth the pools.
15They go from strength to strength, every one of them 16in Zion appeareth before God.
O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.
17Behold, O God 18our shield, and look upon 19the face 20of thine anointed.
For a day in thy 21courts is 22better than a thousand. I had rather be a 23doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell 24in the tents of wickedness.
For the LORD God is 25a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will 26he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
O LORD of hosts, blessedcis the man that trusteth in thee.
