Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 84:2

_ _ longeth — most intensely (Genesis 31:30; Psalms 17:12).

_ _ fainteth — exhausted with desire.

_ _ courts — as tabernacles (Psalms 84:1) — the whole building.

_ _ crieth out — literally, “sings for joy”; but here, and Lamentations 2:19, expresses an act of sorrow as the corresponding noun (Psalms 17:1; Psalms 61:2).

_ _ heart and ... flesh — as in Psalms 63:1.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
