Psalms Chapters 84 & 85
Psalms Chapter 84
1: How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!
2: My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
3: Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
4: Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.
5: Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; 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 appeareth before God.
8: O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.
9: Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.
10: For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11: For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
12: O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
Psalms Chapter 85
1: LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
2: Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
3: Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
4: Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
5: Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
6: Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
7: Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
8: I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
9: Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
10: Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11: Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12: Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
13: Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
