诗篇 84

渴慕住在圣殿

可拉后裔的诗,交给乐长,用迦特乐器。

1万军之耶和华啊,
你的居所多么美好!
我深愿进入耶和华的院宇,
我的身心向永活的上帝欢呼。
万军之耶和华,
我的王我的上帝啊,
在你的祭坛边,麻雀找到了家,
燕子筑巢养育幼雏。
住在你殿里的人有福了!
他们不断地歌颂你。(细拉)

靠你得力量、向往到锡安朝见你的人有福了!
他们走过流泪谷,
这谷就变成泉源之地,
秋雨使谷中水塘遍布。
他们越走越有力,
都要到锡安朝见上帝。
万军之上帝耶和华啊,
求你听我的祷告;
雅各的上帝啊,求你垂听。(细拉)
上帝啊,求你照看我们的盾牌,
垂顾你所膏立的王。
10 在你的院宇住一日胜过在别处住千日!
我宁愿在我上帝的殿中看门,
也不愿住在恶人的帐篷里。
11 因为耶和华上帝是太阳,是盾牌;
祂赐下恩惠和尊荣,
不留下任何好处不赐给行为正直的人。
12 万军之耶和华啊,
信靠你的人有福了!

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.
