|Longing for the Temple Worship|
|For the Chief Musician; set to the Gittith. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.|
| ||HOW amiable 1 are thy tabernacles,|
O Jehovah of hosts!
| ||My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of Jehovah;|
My heart and my flesh cry 2 out unto the living God.
| ||Yea, the sparrow hath found her a house,|
And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young,
Even thine altars, O Jehovah of hosts,
My King, and my God.
| ||Blessed are they that dwell in thy house:|
They will be still praising thee. [Selah
| ||Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee;|
In whose heart are the highways to Zion.
| ||Passing through the valley of Weeping 3 they make it a place of springs;|
Yea, the early rain covereth it with blessings.
| ||They go from strength to strength;|
Every one of them appeareth before God in Zion.
| ||O Jehovah God of hosts, hear my prayer;|
Give ear, O God of Jacob. [Selah
| ||Behold, O God our shield,|
And look upon the face of thine anointed.
| ||For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand.|
I had rather be 4 a doorkeeper in the house of my God,
Than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
| ||For Jehovah God is a sun and a shield:|
Jehovah will give grace and glory;
No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
| ||O Jehovah of hosts,|
Blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
