Selah. 5Blessed is the man whose strength is in you; in whose heart are the ways of them. 6Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also fills the pools. 7They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appears before God. 8O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob.
