Psalm 84 (The Living Bible)

June 19, 2010

How lovely is your Temple. O Lord of the armies of heaven.

I long yes faint with longing to be able to enter your courtyard and come near to the Living God.

Even the sparrows and swallows are welcome to come and nest among your altars and there have their young, O Lord of heaven’s armies, my KIng and my God!

How happy are those who can live in you Temple, singing your praises.

Happy are those who are strong in the Lord, who want above all else to follow your steps.

When they walk through the Valley of Weeping it will become a place of springs where pools of blessing and refreshment collect after rains!

They will grow constantly in strength and each of them is invited to meet with the Lord in Zion.

O Jehovah, God of the heavenly armies, hear my prayer! Listen, God of Israel.

O God, our Defender and our Shield, have mercy on the one you have anointed as your king.

A single day spent in your Temple is better than a thousand anywhere else!  would rather be a doorman of the Temple of my God than live in palaces of wickedness.

For Jehovah God is our light and our Protector. He gives us grace and glory. No good thing will he withhold from those who walk along his paths.

O Lord of the armies of heaven, blessed are those who trust in you.
