For the director of music. According to gittith.b Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.
1 How lovely is your dwelling place,p
2 My soul yearns,q even faints,
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the living God.r
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,s
they are ever praising you.c
5 Blessed are those whose strengthw is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.x
they make it a place of springs;y
7 They go from strength to strength,a
8 Hear my prayer,d Lord God Almighty;
listen to me, God of Jacob.
look with favor on your anointed one.f
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeperg in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withholdj
from those whose walk is blameless.
blessedk is the one who trusts in you.
you restored the fortunesl of Jacob.
and covered all their sins.b
3 You set aside all your wratho
and turned from your fierce anger.p
and put away your displeasure toward us.
5 Will you be angry with us forever?s
Will you prolong your anger through all generations?
6 Will you not revivet us again,
that your people may rejoiceu in you?
7 Show us your unfailing love,v Lord,
and grant us your salvation.w
he promises peacex to his people, his faithful servants—
but let them not turn to folly.y
9 Surely his salvationz is near those who fear him,
that his glorya may dwell in our land.
10 Love and faithfulnessb meet together;
righteousnessc and peace kiss each other.
and righteousnessd looks down from heaven.
12 The Lord will indeed give what is good,e
and our land will yieldf its harvest.
and prepares the way for his steps.
