The Courts of God


Psalm 84 (NIV)

1For the director of music. According to gittith. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.

How lovely is your dwelling place,

O Lord Almighty!

2My soul yearns, even faints,

for the courts of the Lord;

my heart and my flesh cry out

for the living God.

3Even 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.

4Blessed are those who dwell in your house;

they are ever praising you.Selah

5Blessed are those whose strength is in you,

who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.

6As they pass through the Valley of Baca,

they make it a place of springs;

the autumn rains also cover it with pools.

7They go from strength to strength,

till each appears before God in Zion.

8Hear my prayer, O Lord God Almighty;

listen to me, O God of Jacob.Selah

9Look upon our shield, O God;

look with favor on your anointed one.

10Better 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.

11For 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.

12O Lord Almighty,

blessed is the man who trusts in you.
