Better is One Day in Your Courts

Psalm 84

1 ¶ (For the choir director; on the Gittith. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.)
How lovely are Your dwelling places,
O LORD of hosts!

2 My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the LORD;
My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.

3 The bird also has found a house,
And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young,
Even Your altars, O LORD of hosts,
My King and my God.

4 How blessed are those who dwell in Your house!
They are ever praising You. Selah.

5 How blessed is the man whose strength is in You;
In whose heart are the highways to Zion!

6 Passing through the valley of Baca, they make it a spring,
The early rain also covers it with blessings.

7 They go from strength to strength,
Every one of them appears before God in Zion.

8 ¶ O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer;
Give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah.

9 Behold our shield, O God,
And look upon the face of Your anointed.

10 For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand outside.
I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God,
Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
The LORD gives grace and glory;
No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

12 O LORD of hosts,
How blessed is the man who trusts in You!
