Psalm 84


Sermon Bible Passage

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

How lovely is your dwelling place,     Lord Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints,     for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out     for the living God. 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. Blessed are those who dwell in your house;     they are ever praising you.

Blessed are those whose strength is in you,     whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baka,     they make it a place of springs;     the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength,     till each appears before God in Zion.

Hear my prayer, Lord God Almighty;     listen to me, God of Jacob. Look on our shield, O God;     look with favour on your anointed one.

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. For the Lord God is a sun and shield;     the Lord bestows favour and honour; no good thing does he withhold     from those whose walk is blameless.

Lord Almighty,     blessed is the one who trusts in you.

Psalm 84
