Blessed are those whose strength1 is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.26
As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs;3 the autumn4 rains also cover it with pools.a7
They go from strength to strength,5 till each appears6 before God in Zion.78
Hear my prayer,8 O LORD God Almighty; listen to me, O God of Jacob. "Selah"
Look upon our shield,b9 O God; look with favor on your anointed one.1010
Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper11 in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
For the LORD God is a sun12 and shield;13 the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold14 from those whose walk is blameless.
O LORD Almighty, blessed15 is the man who trusts in you.
