Lovely are thy dwellings, O Lord, thy habitation,

My soul cries out for thee, O Lord, with exaltation.

Sparrows and swallows make their nest

At thine altars, O Lord of hosts.

Blessed are those who dwell with thee,

They sing thy praises now and forever.


For the Lord our God is our sun, our shield forever

He grants to us all that we need by his good favor.

One day within thy courts, O Lord,

Is far better than thousands elsewhere.

Blessed are those who trust in thee,

They go from strength to strength in thy presence.

My King and my God.

26:34 & 27:46 - 28:5 When Esau was forty years old, he took as wives Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Basemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite. And they were a grief of mind to Isaac and Rebekah. … And Rebekah said to Isaac, “I am weary of my life because of the daughters of Heth; if Jacob takes a wife of the daughters of Heth, like these who are the daughters of the land, what good will my life be to me?” Then Isaac called Jacob and blessed him, and charged him, and said to him: “You shall not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan. Arise, go to Padan Aram, to the house of Bethuel your mother’s father; and take yourself a wife from there of the daughters of Laban your mother’s brother. May God Almighty bless you, and make you fruitful and multiply you, that you may be an assembly of peoples; and give you the blessing of Abraham, to you and your descendants with you, that you may inherit the land in which you are a stranger, which God gave to Abraham.” So Isaac sent Jacob away, and he went to Padan Aram, to Laban the son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, the mother of Jacob and Esau.
