The Book of Psalms

Psalm 83

Quam dilecta.

The soul aspireth after heaven; rejoicing in the mean time, in being in the communion of God's church upon earth.


1
Unto the end, for the winepresses, a psalm for the sons of Core.

2
How lovely are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!

3
my soul longeth and fainteth for the courts of the Lord. My heart and my flesh have rejoiced in the living God.

4
For the sparrow hath found herself a house, and the turtle a nest for herself where she may lay her young ones: Thy altars, O Lord of hosts, my king and my God.

5
Blessed are they that dwell in thy house, O Lord: they shall praise thee for ever and ever.

6
Blessed is the man whose help is from thee: in his heart he hath disposed to ascend by steps,

7
In the vale of tears, in the place which he hath set.

8
For the lawgiver shall give a blessing, they shall go from virtue to virtue: the God of gods shall be seen in Sion.

9
O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob.

10
Behold, O God our protector: and look on the face of thy Christ.

11
For better is one day in thy courts above thousands. I have chosen to be an abject in the house of my God, rather than to dwell in the tabernacles of sinners.

12
For God loveth mercy and truth: the Lord will give grace and glory.

13
He will not deprive of good things them that walk in innocence: O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
