Psalm 83

To the Chief Musician. On an instrument of Gath. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.

3 | Even the sparrow has found a home,
   And the swallow a nest for herself,
   Where she may lay her young—
   Even Your altars, O Lord of hosts,
   My King and my God.
4 Blessed are those who dwell in Your house;
   They will still be praising You. Selah
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You,
   Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.
6 As they pass through the Valley of Baca,
   They make it a spring;
   The rain also covers it with pools.
7 They go from strength to strength;
    Each one appears before God in Zion.
8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer;
   Give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah
9 O God, behold our shield,
   And look upon the face of Your anointed.
10 For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand.
     I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
     Than 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 those who walk uprightly.
12 O Lord of hosts,
     Blessed is the man who trusts in You!
