1: To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. How amiable [are] thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts! 2: My soul longeth, and even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God. 3: Yes, the sparrow hath found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, [even] thy 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. Selah. 9: Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thy anointed. 10: For a day in thy courts [is] better than a thousand. I had rather be a door-keeper 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 will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. 12: O LORD of hosts, blessed [is] the man that trusteth in thee.
