To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.
3Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young,
at your altars, O Yahweh of hosts, my King and my God.
4Blessed are those who dwell in your house,
ever singing your praise! Selah
5Blessed are the men whose strength is in you,
in whose heart are the highways to Zion.
6As they go through the valley of Baca they make it a place of springs;
the early rain also covers it with pools.
7They go from strength to strength;
the God of gods will be seen in Zion.
8 O Yahweh God of hosts, hear my prayer;
give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah
9Behold our shield, O God;
look upon the face of your anointed!
10For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11For Yahweh God is a sun and shield;
he bestows favour and honour.
No good thing does Yahweh withhold
from those who walk uprightly.
12O Yahweh of hosts,
blessed is the man who trusts in you!
