Psalm 84

How lovely is your dwelling-place :
 O Lord God of hosts!
My soul has a desire and longing to enter the courts of the Lord :
 my heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God.
The sparrow has found her a home,
   and the swallow a nest where she may lay her young :
 even your altar, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house :
 they will always be praising you.
Blessed is the man whose strength is in you :
 in whose heart are the highways to Zion;
Who, going through the valley of dryness,
   finds there a spring from which to drink :
 till the autumn rain shall clothe it with blessings.
They go from strength to strength :
 they appear, every one of them, before the God of gods in Zion.
O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer :
 give ear, O God of Jacob.
Behold, O God, him who reigns over us :
 and look upon the face of your anointed.
One 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 ungodliness.
For the Lord God is a rampart and a shield,
   the Lord gives favour and honour :
 and no good thing will he withhold
   from those who walk in innocence.
O Lord God of hosts :
 blessed is the man who puts his trust in you.

Psalm 122

I was glad when they said to me :
 ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord.’
And now our feet are standing :
 within your gates, O Jerusalem;
Jerusalem which is built as a city :
 where the pilgrims gather in unity.
There the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord :
 as he commanded Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
There are set thrones of judgement :
 the thrones of the house of David.
O pray for the peace of Jerusalem :
 may those who love you prosper.
Peace be within your walls :
 and prosperity in your palaces.
For the sake of my brothers and companions :
 I will pray that peace be with you.
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God :
 I will seek for your good.
