How lovely is your dwelling place,1 O LORD Almighty!
My soul yearns,2 even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.33
Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young-- a place near your altar,4 O LORD Almighty,5 my King6 and my God.74
Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. "Selah"
Blessed are those whose strength8 is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.96
As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs;10 the autumn11 rains also cover it with pools.a7
They go from strength to strength,12 till each appears13 before God in Zion.148
Hear my prayer,15 O LORD God Almighty; listen to me, O God of Jacob. "Selah"
Look upon our shield,b16 O God; look with favor on your anointed one.1710
Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper18 in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
For the LORD God is a sun19 and shield;20 the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold21 from those whose walk is blameless.
O LORD Almighty, blessed22 is the man who trusts in you.
