The Psalms

Longing for God's House
To the chief Musician upon Git'tith, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.

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 still praising thee.
5  Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee;
in whose heart are the ways of them.
6  Who passing through the valley of Baca make 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.
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 had 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.
