Amplified Bible

Psalm 84

Longing for the Temple Worship.

To the Chief Musician; set to a [a]Philistine lute. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.

1How lovely are Your dwelling places,
O Lord of hosts!

My soul (my life, my inner self) longs for and greatly desires the courts of the Lord;
My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.

The bird has found a house,
And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young—
Even Your altars, O Lord of hosts,
My King and my God.

Blessed and greatly favored are those who dwell in Your house and Your presence;
They will be singing Your praises all the day long. Selah.


Blessed and greatly favored is the man whose strength is in You,
In [b]whose heart are the highways to Zion.

Passing through the Valley of Weeping ([c]Baca), they make it a place of springs;
The early rain also covers it with blessings.

They go from strength to strength [increasing in victorious power];
Each of them appears before God in Zion.


O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer;
Listen, O God of Jacob! Selah.

See our shield, O God,
And look at the face of Your anointed [the king as Your representative].
10 
For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [anywhere else];
I would rather stand [as a doorkeeper] at the threshold of the house of my God
Than to live [at ease] in the tents of wickedness.
11 
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
The Lord bestows grace and favor and honor;
No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
12 
O Lord of hosts,
How blessed and greatly favored is the man who trusts in You [believing in You, relying on You, and committing himself to You with confident hope and expectation].

詩篇 84

渴慕住在聖殿

可拉後裔的詩,交給樂長,用迦特樂器。

1萬軍之耶和華啊,
你的居所多麼美好!
我深願進入耶和華的院宇,
我的身心向永活的上帝歡呼。
萬軍之耶和華,
我的王我的上帝啊,
在你的祭壇邊,麻雀找到了家,
燕子築巢養育幼雛。
住在你殿裡的人有福了!
他們不斷地歌頌你。(細拉)

靠你得力量、嚮往到錫安朝見你的人有福了!
他們走過流淚谷,
這谷就變成泉源之地,
秋雨使谷中水塘遍佈。
他們越走越有力,
都要到錫安朝見上帝。
萬軍之上帝耶和華啊,
求你聽我的禱告;
雅各的上帝啊,求你垂聽。(細拉)
上帝啊,求你照看我們的盾牌,
垂顧你所膏立的王。
10 在你的院宇住一日勝過在別處住千日!
我寧願在我上帝的殿中看門,
也不願住在惡人的帳篷裡。
11 因為耶和華上帝是太陽,是盾牌;
祂賜下恩惠和尊榮,
不留下任何好處不賜給行為正直的人。
12 萬軍之耶和華啊,
信靠你的人有福了!
