Lord of hosts, hear my prayer; listen, God of Jacob.
O God, look kindly on our shield; look upon the face of your anointed.

Better one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere.
Better the threshold of the house of my God than a home in the tents of the wicked.
For a sun and shield is the Lord God, bestowing all grace and glory.
The Lord withholds no good things from those who walk without reproach.
O Lord of hosts, happy are those who trust in you!

Psalm 84 continued – verses 9-13
