84:1 For the Leader; upon the Gittith. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.

84:2 How lovely are Thy tabernacles, O the Lord of hosts!

84:3 My soul yearneth, yea, even pineth for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh sing for joy unto the living God.

84:4 Yea, the sparrow hath found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young; Thine altars, O the Lord of hosts, my King, and my God--.

84:5 Happy are they that dwell in Thy house, they are ever praising Thee. Selah

84:6 Happy is the man whose strength is in Thee; in whose heart are the highways.

84:7 Passing through the valley of Baca they make it a place of springs; yea, the early rain clotheth it with blessings.

84:8 They go from strength to strength, every one of them appeareth before God in Zion.

84:9 O the Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah

84:10 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of Thine anointed.

84:11 For a day in Thy courts is better than a thousand; I had rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

84:12 For the Lord God is a sun and a shield; the Lord giveth grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.

84:13 O the Lord of hosts, happy is the man that trusteth in Thee.
