Psalms Chapter 84

1 For the Leader; upon the Gittith. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.
2 How lovely are Thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!

Thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God--.
5 Happy are they that dwell in Thy house, they are ever praising Thee. Selah
6 Happy is the man whose strength is in Thee; in whose heart are the highways.
7 Passing through the valley of Baca they make it a place of springs; {N}
yea, the early rain clotheth it with blessings.
8 They go from strength to strength, every one of them appeareth before God in Zion.
9 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer; {N}
give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah
10 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of Thine anointed.
11 For a day in Thy courts is better than a thousand; {N}
I had rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
12 For the LORD God is a sun and a shield; {N}
the LORD giveth grace and glory; {N}
no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.
13 O LORD of hosts, happy is the man that trusteth in Thee. {P}
