Blessed are all who dwell in Your house: they will praise You forever and ever.
Blessed is the man whose help is from You, O Lord; he sets paths upward in his heart in the valley of weeping, in the place which he has appointed, for there the Law‑Giver will grant blessings.
They shall go from strength to strength: the God of gods shall be revealed in Zion.
How beloved are Your dwellings, O Lord, God of hosts!
My soul longs, and faints for the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh have exulted in the living God.
For, the sparrow has found for himself a home, and the turtledove for herself a nest, where she may lay her young;
Your altars, O Lord, God of hosts, my King, and my God.
O Lord, God of hosts, hear my prayer: hearken, O God of Jacob. Behold, O God our defender, and look upon the face of Your anointed.
For one day in Your courts is better than thousands. I chose to throw myself down in the house of God, more than to dwell in the tents of the sinners.
For the Lord God loves mercy and truth; He shall give grace and glory: the Lord shall not withhold good things from those who walk in innocence. O Lord God of hosts, blessed is the man who hopes in You.
