Psalm 84 (New International Version)
1 How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty!
2 My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the living God.
3 Even the sparrow has found a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may have her young—

who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.

listen to me, O God of Jacob.
9 Look upon our shield, [Sovereign ] O God;

than a thousand elsewhere;

the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
