Psalm 84 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Your dwelling place is lovely, O LORD of Armies! 2 My soul longs and yearns for the LORD's courtyards. My whole body shouts for joy to the living God. 3 Even sparrows find a home, and swallows find a nest for themselves. There they hatch their young near your altars, O LORD of Armies, my king and my God. 4 Blessed are those who live in your house. They are always praising you. Selah 5 Blessed are those who find strength in you. Their hearts are on the road [that leads to you]. 6 As they pass through a valley where balsam trees grow, they make it a place of springs. The early rains cover it with blessings. 7 Their strength grows as they go along until each one of them appears in front of God in Zion. 8 O LORD God, commander of armies, hear my prayer. Open your ears, O God of Jacob. Selah 9 Look at our shield, O God. Look with favor on the face of your anointed one. 10 One day in your courtyards is better than a thousand [anywhere else]. I would rather stand in the entrance to my God's house than live inside wicked people's homes. 11 The LORD God is a sun and shield. The LORD grants favor and honor. He does not hold back any blessing from those who live innocently. 12 O LORD of Armies, blessed is the person who trusts you.
