1 For the Chief Musician; set to the Gittith. A Psalm of the sons of Korah. How amiable are your tabernacles, O Yahweh of hosts!

2 My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of Yahweh; My heart and my flesh cry out to the living God.

3 Yes, the sparrow has found her a house, And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, Even your altars, O Yahweh of hosts, My King, and my God.

4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house: They will still be praising you. Selah.

5 Blessed is [the] man whose strength is in you; In whose heart are the highways [to Zion].

6 Passing through the valley of Weeping they make it a place of springs; Yes, the early rain covers it with blessings.

7 They go from strength to strength; The God of gods will be seen in Zion.

8 O Yahweh God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.

9 Look, O God our shield, And look at the face of your anointed.

10 For a day in your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, Than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

11 For Yahweh God is a sun and a shield: Yahweh will give grace and glory; No good thing will he withhold from those who walk uprightly.

12 O Yahweh of hosts, Blessed is [the] man who trusts in you.
