8 渴慕神的殿 Longing for God’s temple 詩 Psalm 23:6我一生一世必有恩惠慈愛隨我；我且要住在耶和華的殿中，直到永遠。Surely goodness and love will follow meall the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
9 神的殿 Temple of God 有一件事，我曾求耶和華，我仍要尋求： 就是一生一世住在耶和華的殿中，瞻仰 祂的榮美，在祂的殿裏求問。 詩篇 Psalm 27:4有一件事，我曾求耶和華，我仍要尋求：就是一生一世住在耶和華的殿中，瞻仰祂的榮美，在祂的殿裏求問。One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD allthe days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty ofthe LORD and to seek him in his temple.
10 麻雀 Sparrows 兩個麻雀不是賣一分銀子嗎？若是 你們的父不許，一個也不能掉在地上； 馬太 Matthew 10:29兩個麻雀不是賣一分銀子嗎？若是你們的父不許，一個也不能掉在地上；Are not two sparrows sold for a penny ?Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father.
11 燕子 Swallows 我像燕子呢喃，像白鶴鳴叫，又像鴿子哀鳴；我因仰觀，眼睛困倦。耶和華啊，我受欺壓，求你為我作保。 賽 Isaiah 38:14我像燕子呢喃，像白鶴鳴叫，又像鴿子哀鳴；我因仰觀，眼睛困倦。耶和華啊，我受欺壓，求你為我作保。I cried like a swift or thrush, I moaned likea mourning dove. My eyes grew weak asI looked to the heavens. I am troubled;O Lord, come to my aid!"
12 燕子 Swallows 耶 Jeremiah 8:7 空中的鸛鳥知道來去的定期；斑鳩燕子與白鶴也守候當來的時令… Even the stork in the sky knows her appointed seasons, and the dove, the swift and the thrush observe the time of their migration…
13 渴慕朝見神 Longing to come before God 5 靠你有力量、心中想往錫安大道的，這人便為有福！6 他們經過「流淚谷」，叫這谷變為泉源之地；並有秋雨之福蓋滿了全谷。7 他們行走，力上加力，各人到錫安朝見神。8 耶和華──萬軍之神啊，求你聽我的禱告！雅各的神啊，求你留心聽！〔細拉〕
14 渴慕朝見神 Longing to come before God 5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.6 As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools.7 They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.8 Hear my prayer, O LORD God Almighty; listen to me, O God of Jacob. ((Selah))
15 心中想往錫安大道的… 申 Deut.16:16 你一切的男丁要在除酵節、七七節、住棚節，一年三次，在耶和華─ ─你神所選擇的地方 朝見他，卻不可空手朝見。Three times a year all your men must appear before the LORD your God at the place He will choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Tabernacles. No man should appear before the LORD empty-handed
17 Blessed are those …who have set their hearts on pilgrimage. 賽 Isaiah 40:28-3128 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
19 渴慕神同在 Longing for God’s presence 9 Look upon our shield, O God; look with favor on your anointed one.10 Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.12 O LORD Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you.
