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!

Psalm 84

Psalm 84[a]

For the director of music. According to gittith.[b] Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.

How lovely is your dwelling-place,
    Lord Almighty!
My soul yearns, even faints,
    for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out
    for the living God.
Even the sparrow has found a home,
    and the swallow a nest for herself,
    where she may have her young –
a place near your altar,
    Lord Almighty, my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
    they are ever praising you.[c]

Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
    whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Baka,
    they make it a place of springs;
    the autumn rains also cover it with pools.[d]
They go from strength to strength,
    till each appears before God in Zion.

Hear my prayer, Lord God Almighty;
    listen to me, God of Jacob.
Look on our shield,[e] O God;
    look with favour on your anointed one.

10 Better is one day in your courts
    than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
    than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
    the Lord bestows favour and honour;
no good thing does he withhold
    from those whose way of life is blameless.

12 Lord Almighty,
    blessed is the one who trusts in you.
