Psalm 84


I just drew a couple of illustrations for a lovely and experiential psalm, number 84.  I took the text from the recovery version of the holy bible.  


Psalms 84

1 How lovely are Your tabernacles, O Jehovah of hosts!
2 My soul longs, indeed even faints, For the courts of Jehovah; My heart and my flesh cry out To the living 
God.



3 At Your two altars even the sparrow has found a home; 

















And the swallow, a nest for herself, Where she may lay her young, O Jehovah of hosts, my King and my God.


4 Blessed are those who dwell in Your house; They will yet be praising You.
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, In whose heart are the highways to Zion.
6 Passing through the valley of Baca, They make it a spring; Indeed the early rain covers it with blessings.
7 They go from strength to strength; Each appears before God in Zion.
8 O Jehovah God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob.
9 Behold our shield, O God; And look upon the face of Your anointed.
10 For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand; I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For Jehovah God is a sun and a shield; Jehovah gives grace and glory; He does not withhold anything good From those who walk uprightly.
12 O Jehovah of hosts, blessed is the man Who trusts in You.
