Psalms 84

Gaebelein's Annotated BibleGaebelein's Annotated

Verses 1-12

Psalm 84-89

Psalms 84:0

In View of the Sanctuary

1. Heart longings (Psalms 84:1-7 )

2. In the sanctuary (Psalms 84:8-12 )

The two next Psalms are of the sons of Korah, who themselves are monuments of saving grace. (They were saved from the fate of Korah; see Numbers 26:10-11 .) In these precious outpourings of the heart for the sanctuary of the Lord, we read prophetically the heart longings of the remnant of Israel. They are not yet in possession of the fullest blessings but look forward now to an early realization of all their hopes of being at His altars again. And all they long for will be their happy and lasting portion. They will go from strength to strength; He will be their Sun and Shield; He will give grace and glory. Psalms 84:9 shows us our Lord. “Behold, O God our Shield, look upon the face of Thine Anointed (Christ).” It is through Him that all this will be accomplished.
