Chapter 84

Verse 1
How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!


A. M. 3469. B.C. 535. (Title.) Gittith
8:1; 81:1; *titles
A Psalm
Some suppose this Psalm was composed by David when driven from Jerusalem by Absalom's rebellion: but it is more probable that it was written at the foundation of the second temple.
for
or, of.
How
36:8; 27:4; 48:1,2; 87:2,3; 122:1; Hebrews 9:23,24; Revelation 21:2,3,22,23
O Lord
103:20,21; 1 Kings 22:19; Nehemiah 9:6; Isaiah 6:2,3

Verse 2
My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
soul
42:1,2; 63:1,2; 73:26; 119:20,81; 143:6; Song of Solomon 2:4,5; 5:8
heart
Job 23:3; Isaiah 26:9; 64:1

Verse 3
Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
Yea, etc
Or, rather, "Even as the sparrow findeth a house, and the swallow (deror, or the ring-dove, according to some, but probably the bird which Forskal mentions among the migratory birds of Alexandria, by the name of dururi) a nest for herself where she may lay her young, (so I seek) thine altars, O Jehovah, God of hosts, my King and my God." That is, as nature inclines birds to seek and prepare their nests, so grace has taught me to desire thy altars, and to worship there.
sparrow
90:1; 91:1; 116:7; Matthew 8:20; 23:37

Verse 4
Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.

they will
71:8,15; 145:1,2,21; Isaiah 12:4,5; Revelation 7:15

Verse 5
Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.

Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
Who
66:10-12; John 16:33; Acts 14:22; Romans 5:3-5; 8:37; 2 Corinthians 4:17; Revelation 7:14
Baca, etc
or, mulberry-trees, make him a well, etc. Baca is probably a large shrub, which the Arabs still call baca, (see on 2 Sa 5:23;) and this valley, as Celsius observes, seems to be one "embarrassed with [such] bushes and thorns, which could not be passed without labour and tears,"--bacah, as 7 MSS., Aquila, and Vulgate read.
2 Samuel 5:22-24
the rain
68:9; 2 Kings 3:9-20

Verse 10
For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
For

Heb. I would choose rather to sit at the threshold.
James 2:3
