To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm for the sons of Korah (Qorach).
1 How lovely are Your tabernacles, O יהוה of hosts (YHWH Tsevaot)!
2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of יהוה; my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God (El chai).
3 Yea, the sparrow hath found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even your altars, O יהוה of hosts (YHWH Tsevaot), my King, and my God (Elohim).
4 Blessed are they that dwell in Your house; they will be still praising You. Selah.
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You; in whose heart are the ways of them.
6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
7 They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion (Tsiyon) appeareth before God (Elohim).
8 O יהוה God of hosts (Elohei Tsevaot), hear my prayer; give ear, O God (Elohim) of Jacob (Yaaqov). Selah.
9 Behold, O God (Elohim) our shield, and look upon the face of Your anointed (mashiach).
10 For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God (Elohim), than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11 For יהוה God (Elohim) is a sun and shield; יהוה will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.
12 O יהוה of hosts (YHWH Tsevaot), blessed is the man that trusteth in You.
