My Soul Longs for the Courts of the Lord

To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.

1 How 1lovely is your 2dwelling place, O LORD of hosts! 2 My soul 3longs, yes, 4faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and flesh sing for joy to 5the living God. 3 Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O LORD of hosts, 6my King and my God. 4 7Blessed are those who dwell in your house, ever 8singing your praise! Selah 5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you, 9in whose heart are the highways to Zion.a 6 As they go through the Valley of Baca they make it a place of springs; 10the early rain also covers it with 11pools. 7 They go 12from strength to strength; each one 13appears before God in Zion. 8 O 14LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah 9 15Behold our 16shield, O God; look on the face of your anointed! 10 For a day 17in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be 18a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. 11 For the LORD God is 19a sun and 20shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. 21No good thing does he withhold from those who 22walk uprightly. 12 O LORD of hosts, 23blessed is the one who trusts in you!
