Salme 84

I Guds hus

1Til korlederen: Brug et strengeinstrument.[a] En sang af en af Koras efterkommere.

Hvor herlig er din bolig,
    Almægtige Gud!
Min sjæl længes efter at være i dit tempel,
    alt i mig glæder sig over den levende Gud.
Spurvene bygger rede tæt ved dit alter,
    svalerne slår sig ned dér og får unger.
De ønsker at være i din nærhed, Herre,
    min almægtige konge og Gud.
Velsignede er de, der bor i dit hus,
    for de kan altid synge lovsange til dig!
Velsignede er de, der søger styrke hos dig,
    som af hjertet ønsker at komme til dit bjerg.
Skal de end vandre gennem tårernes dal,
    forfrisker du dem med dit kildevand,
        de mættes af regnens velsignelser.
Deres styrke forøges og vokser,
    de træder frem for Gud på Zions høj.
Hør mig, Herre, almægtige Gud,
    lyt til min bøn, du Israels Gud.
10 Se i nåde til din udvalgte konge,
    hjælp ham, som beskytter dit folk.
11 Én dag i din helligdom er bedre
    end tusinde dage andre steder.
Hellere være dørvogter i Guds hus
    end have overflod i de gudløses telte.
12 For Herren er vores sol og skjold,
    han giver nåde og herlighed.
De, der er ærlige og oprigtige,
    nægter han intet godt.
13 Almægtige Herre,
    velsignede er alle, der stoler på dig.

Psalm 84

Psalm 84

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

Lord who rules over all,
    how lovely is the place where you live!
I can’t wait to be in the courtyards of the Lord’s temple.
    I really want to be there.
My whole being cries out
    for the living God.

Lord who rules over all,
    even the sparrow has found a home near your altar.
My King and my God,
    the swallow also has a nest there,
    where she may have her young.
Blessed are those who live in your house.
    They are always praising you.

Blessed are those whose strength comes from you.
    They have firmly decided to travel to your temple.
As they pass through the dry Valley of Baka,
    they make it a place where water flows.
    The rain in the fall covers it with pools.
Those people get stronger as they go along,
    until each of them appears in Zion, where God lives.

Lord God who rules over all, hear my prayer.
    God of the people of Jacob, listen to me.
God, may you be pleased with your anointed king.
    You appointed him to be like a shield that keeps us safe.

10 A single day in your courtyards is better
    than a thousand anywhere else.
I would rather guard the door of the house of my God
    than live in the tents of sinful people.
11 The Lord God is like the sun that gives us light.
    He is like a shield that keeps us safe.
    The Lord blesses us with favor and honor.
He doesn’t hold back anything good
    from those whose lives are without blame.

12 Lord who rules over all,
    blessed is the person who trusts in you.
