6Passing through the valley of aBaca they make it a bspring; The 1earlyrainalsocovers it with blessings.
They 2go from strength to strength, cEvery one of them 3appearsbeforeGod in Zion.
O 4LORDGod of hosts, hear my prayer; Giveear, O 5God of Jacob! Selah.
9Behold our 6shield, O God, And look upon the face of 7Your anointed.
For 8a day in Your courts is betterthan a thousand outside. I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my GodThandwell in the tents of wickedness.
For the LORDGod is 9a sun and 10shield; The LORDgivesgrace and 11glory; 12Nogoodthing does He withholddfrom those who walkeuprightly.
O LORD of hosts, How 13blessed is the man who trusts in You!
