My heart and my body will rejoice out loud to the living God! NRS 2 My soul longs, indeed it faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God. CEB 3 Yes, the sparrow too has found a home there; the swallow has found herself a nest where she can lay her young beside your altars, LORD of heavenly forces, my king, my God! NRS 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, my King and my God. CEB 4 Those who live in your house are truly happy; they praise you constantly. Selah NRS 4 Happy are those who live in your house, ever singing your praise. (Selah) CEB 5 Those who put their strength in you are truly happy; pilgrimage is in their hearts. NRS 5 Happy are those whose strength is in you, in whose heart are the highways to Zion. CEB 6 As they pass through the Baca Valley, they make it a spring of water. Yes, the early rain covers it with blessings. NRS 6 As they go through the valley of Baca they make it a place of springs; the early rain also covers it with pools. CEB 7 They go from strength to strength, until they see the supreme God in Zion. NRS 7 They go from strength to strength; the God of gods will be seen in Zion. CEB 8 LORD God of heavenly forces, hear my prayer; listen closely, Jacob's God!

NRS 9 Behold our shield, O God; look on the face of your anointed. CEB 10 Better is a single day in your courtyards than a thousand days anywhere else! I would prefer to stand outside the entrance of my God's house than live comfortably in the tents of the wicked! NRS 10 For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than live in the tents of wickedness. CEB 11 The LORD is a sun and shield; God is favor and glory. The LORD gives—doesn't withhold!—good things to those who walk with integrity. NRS 11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; he bestows favor and honor. No good thing does the Lord withhold from those who walk uprightly. CEB 12 LORD of heavenly forces, those who trust in you are truly happy! NRS 12 O Lord of hosts, happy is everyone who trusts in you.
