84:1 (To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.) How amiable [are] thy tabernacles, O a LORD of hosts!

    (a) David complains that he cannot have access to the Church of God to make profession of his faith, and to profit in religion.
84:2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the b courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
    (b) For only the priests could enter the sanctuary and the rest of the people into the courts.
84:3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, [even] thine c altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
    (c) So that the poor birds have more freedom than I.
84:5 Blessed [is] the man whose d strength [is] in thee; in whose heart [are] the ways [of them].
    (d) Who trusts nothing in himself but in you only, and learns from you to rule his life.
84:6 [Who] passing through the valley of c Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
    (c) So that the poor birds have more freedom than I.
84:7 They go from f strength to strength, [every one of them] in Zion appeareth before God.
    (f) They are never weary but increase in strength and courage till they come to God's house.

84:9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine g anointed.

    (g) That is, for Christ's sake, whose figure I represent.
84:10 For h 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.
    (h) He would rather live one day in God's Church than a thousand in the world.
84:11 For the LORD God [is] a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no i good [thing] will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
    (i) But will from time to time increase his blessings toward his more and more.
