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 an 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. Selah.
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
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
12 O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
