1 <> How amiable are Thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!
2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
3 Yea, the sparrow hath found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself where she may lay her young" even Thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King and my God.
4 Blessed are they that dwell in Thy house; they will be ever praising Thee. Selah
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in Thee, in whose heart are Thy ways,
6 who passing through the Valley of Baca makes it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
7 They go from strength to strength; every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah
9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of Thine anointed.
10 For a day in Thy courts is better than a thousand; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.
12 O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in Thee!
