Summer in the Psalms: Psalm 84

Message Outline


For the director of music. According to gittith. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.

1 How lovely is your dwelling place,

  Lord Almighty!

2 My soul yearns, even faints,

  for the courts of the Lord;

my heart and my flesh cry out

  for the living God.

3 Even the sparrow has found a home,

  and the swallow a nest for herself,

  where she may have her young—

a place near your altar,

  Lord Almighty, my King and my God.

4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house;

  they are ever praising you.

5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you,

  whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.

6 As they pass through the Valley of Baka,

  they make it a place of springs;

  the autumn rains also cover it with pools.

7 They go from strength to strength,

  till each appears before God in Zion.

8 Hear my prayer, Lord God Almighty;

  listen to me, God of Jacob.

9 Look on our shield,[e] O God;

  look with favor on your anointed one.

10 Better is one day in your courts

  than a thousand elsewhere;

I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God

  than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;

  the Lord bestows favor and honor;

no good thing does he withhold

  from those whose walk is blameless.

12 Lord Almighty,

  blessed is the one who trusts in you.
