Psalms 84

Previous Chapter | Next Chapter

 1 How amiable are your tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!

 2 My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cries out for the living God.

 3 Yes, the sparrow has found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even on your altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.

 4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they will be singing and praising you all the day long. Selah.

 5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in you and who have set their heart on the pilgrimage to Zion;

 6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a spring; the rains also fills the pools.

 7 They go from strength to strength; each one of them appears before God in Zion.

 8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer; listen to me, O God of Jacob. Selah.

 9 Behold, our shield our shield, and look upon 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 to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

 11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD will give grace and favor and glory; he will withhold no good thing from those who walk uprightly.1

 12 O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man who trusts in you.

_______________________________________

1 The lord will withhold no good thing from those who walk uprightly. The false ministers of Babylon today preach a gospel of prosperity, saying that God will bless a man who still walks in his carnal, sinful, selfish nature. This is a lie. If God were to bless a man who is still selfish, who has not been broken, who has not crucified his sinful nature, then that man would spend his blessing on satisfying his lusts and pleasures — wasting it, and digging himself into a pit even deeper; which pit a man has to dig himself out of, either in this life, or the next life, called Hell. So until a man's selfish nature has been destroyed by the chastising hand of God, he does not walk uprightly, and he does not receive the blessing of God.
