Psalms Chapter 84 Discussion

    Mr. Priday,

    Regarding Psalm 84, I think there is no question that this is talking about Salvation itself. We must remember that Christ spoke in parables and without a parable spoke He not. And since Christ is the very Word of God we can expect these parables to exist in every part of the Bible teaching some aspect of the Gospel. That is certainly the case in Psalm 84. Every verse is dripping with with a salvation message and the blessedness of being in the eternal kingdom of God made up of all True Believers and Christ Himself.

    Psalm 84. This Psalm once again is written for the sons of Korah and addressed TO the chief musician "upon Gittith". The theory apparently is that there was a certain musical style that was attributed to whoever this people were.

    Remembering once again the rebellion in Numbers 16; there is a pretty clear indication in verse 10 of the event as it is stated that being a doorkeeper in God's house than to "dwell in the tents of wickedness." This should help us keep in mind situations such as that of Sodom and Gomorrah as well where Lot escaped "as through the flames" ( Gen. 11:27; 1 Cor. 3:15).

    We are given future promises as well. Men will come to worship every year in Jerusalem ( Zech. 14:16) or else face punishment. (verses 5-8). We even see provision for birds who will apparently nest there (verse 3) Verse 6 shows how there will be ample water in the area at that time as well. The verse of the anointed in verse 9 surely refers to Christ; although David will once again rule as well as ourselves as "kings and priests" ( Hosea 3:5; Rev. 5:10).

    Verse 12 shows a very important principle of trust and blessedness associated with it. If we desire a blessing we must live according to His righteousness and be obedient in service out of love ( John 14:15).

    Yes, Donna, all of what you mentioned are good to keep in our prayers. May Ian decrease in intensity and spend itself out over open waters rather than on land.

    That's a tall order, Nancy! :)

    I had a book once called "God's Little Promise Book", which at that time in my life was a big help to me. I'm sure you could find one online at a very reasonable price. It's a great resource to have many promises in one place for quick referral. Although that little book could not cover every promise in the Bible - it was very useful.

    As you study each day, ask the Holy Spirit to quicken verses that are personal to you to 'grab hold of' and make them yours, too.

    God bless you as you did into His Word!

    Psalms 84 :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.

    1. Court is a village, town, a hall, a palace.

    2. "For a day in THY courts is better than a thousand" One day in your present is a lifetime of blessing, joy, and happiness.

    3. What is a doorkeeper? A doorkeeper is a person who tends a door. If I can work at your door for one day, I will praise you. I will rejoice. Just to be in his present.

    4. Who is the wickedness? Wickedness is unrighteousness, unjust, mischief, hurt, bad, trouble, and evil.

    Hi Ethel

    Are you asking what the word "psalm" means?

    It means song.

    But if you are asking what the meaning of the psalms are, then being more specific about a psalm number and verse may help us respond
  • Ethel Mae Gardner on Psalms 84 - 2 years ago
    what does psalms mean personally!
  • Rick - In Reply on Psalms 84:11 - 2 years ago
    Bill The word there used for uprightly means complete and to walk complete before God is in obedience to

    His Word because His Word is His will.
  • David - In Reply on Psalms 84:11 - 2 years ago
    Bill Basically in harmony and alignment with Gods Word or fellowship with God and His Son.
  • Bill on Psalms 84:11 - 2 years ago
    what does it mean to walk uprightly?
  • Sherry Fields on Psalms 84:10 - 2 years ago
    As a Child I was taught that verse by my Mother which has always made me see myself as a 'Doorkeeper' ( someone special ) and also gave me a great sense of being loved throughout my life. Thank you for sharing.
  • Kate on Psalms 84 - 3 years ago
    Amen and Amen
  • Chris - In Reply on Psalms 84:11 - 3 years ago
    Psalm 84:11 is indeed a precious & powerful to hang onto, Wen, & especially when the Lord puts it into your mind at midnight. The Lord can be trusted to perform His Word & to bless you in your life's situations as you hang onto Him in implicit faith.
  • Wen on Psalms 84:11 - 3 years ago
    This scripture came to me close to midnight as I was casting my care upon God and relating how it seemed like the odds were against us regarding a particular situation; a situation that he knows all about.

    In that moment I asked him to help me to live upright ( whatever it means, whatever it takes).
  • Vern on Psalms 84 - 3 years ago
    Ya know, God will always bless the lives of those who seek righteousness and walk in faith. I'm putting some things in order in my life. I became so cocky. I was doing it My way. When GOD humbles you he does it with love but boy I sure want to take back my will. His Holy Spirit ring softly in my mind and gut. God's conviction has done for me what I couldn't do myself. I understand now. Thank you Lord. Walk upright and trust our Father God.
  • Natasha on Psalms 84 - 3 years ago
    Though it seems at a point in life tears have been many. tears of hurt, tears of pain, tears of sorrow, tears of mistakes, tears of regret and tears of repentance oh lord will turn this season in my life to tears of joy, laughter, hope, peace and the confidence of being led and filled even more with you and the abundance of your blessings!

    Every christian including those in office as ushers. Acts 1:8
  • Freedomborn in Truth on Psalms 84 - 4 years ago
    So True for me is verse 10 but of course there are God's Tents too Numbers24:5 - Joshua22:6-8 Many Christans today have been Saved by the Revivals in them. God knows our Hearts Focus Heb4:12-16 and we know Our Salvation is not earned it is shown by our Love but not wordly love our Godly Love and when we are Perfected in His Love and have His seed we Can't Sin 1John 3 and 5. Blessings -Annie.
  • Ruben Hartness - In Reply on Psalms 84 - 4 years ago
    Doorkeeper to stand at the threshold. Rather stand outside God's house at the door than be inside the tent of wickedness.
