Tehillim/Psalms 46.2-4, 12

 

IMGP3035

God is our refuge and stronghold,

a help in trouble, very near.

Therefore we are not afraid

though the earth reels,

though mountains topple into the sea ~

its waters rage and foam;

in its swell mountains quake. Selah. . . .

[but] The Lord of hosts is with us;

The God of Jacob is our haven. Selah.

Tehillim/Psalms 46.2-4, 12


Tehillim/Psalms 84.2-5

 

How lovely is Your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts.

I long, I yearn for the courts of the Lord;

my body and soul shout for joy to the living G-d.

Even the sparrow has found a home,

and the swallow a nest for herself in which to set her young,

near Your altar, O Lord of hosts,

my king and my G-d.

Happy are those who dwell in Your house;

they forever praise You.    Selah.
