MORNING PSALM 84

1   How lovely is your dwelling place,
O LORD of hosts!
2   My soul longs, indeed it faints
for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and my flesh sing for joy
to the living God.

3   Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young,
at your altars, O LORD of hosts,
my King and my God.
4   Happy are those who live in your house,
ever singing your praise. Selah

5   Happy are those whose strength is in you,
in whose heart are the highways to Zion.
6   As they go through the valley of Baca
they make it a place of springs;
the early rain also covers it with pools.
7   They go from strength to strength;
the God of gods will be seen in Zion.

8   O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer;
give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah
9   Behold our shield, O God;
look on the face of your anointed.

10  For a day in your courts is better
than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than live in the tents of wickedness.
11  For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
he bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does the LORD withhold
from those who walk uprightly.
12  O LORD of hosts,
happy is everyone who trusts in you.

EVENING PSALM 126

1   When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion,
we were like those who dream.
2   Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
and our tongue with shouts of joy;
then it was said among the nations,
“The LORD has done great things for them.”
3   The LORD has done great things for us,
and we rejoiced.

4   Restore our fortunes, O LORD,
like the watercourses in the Negeb.
5   May those who sow in tears
reap with shouts of joy.
6   Those who go out weeping,
bearing the seed for sowing,
shall come home with shouts of joy,
carrying their sheaves.
