New International Version
LORD, I love the house where you live, the place where your glory dwells.
King James Bible
LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
Darby Bible Translation

World English Bible
Yahweh, I love the habitation of your house, the place where your glory dwells.
Young's Literal Translation
Jehovah, I have loved the habitation of Thy house, And the place of the tabernacle of Thine honour.
Psalm 26:8 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house - I have carefully used thine ordinances, that I might obtain more grace to help me to persevere. And I have not been attentive to those duties, merely because they were incumbent on me; but I have loved the place where thine honor dwelleth; and my delight in thy ordinances has made my attendance as pleasant as it was profitable. This verse would be better translated, Jehovah, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place of the tabernacle of thy glory. The habitation must mean the holy of holies, where the Divine Presence was manifest; and the place of the tabernacle must refer to the mercy-seat, or the place where the glory of the Lord appeared between the cherubim, upon the lid or cover of the ark of the covenant. From his dwelling there, משכן mishcan, the place and the appearance were called שכינה shechinah; the dwelling of Jehovah, or that glorious appearance which was the symbol of the Divine Presence.

1 Samuel 2:29
Why do you scorn my sacrifice and offering that I prescribed for my dwelling? Why do you honor your sons more than me by fattening yourselves on the choice parts of every offering made by my people Israel?'
1 Samuel 4:21
She named the boy Ichabod, saying, "The Glory has departed from Israel"--because of the capture of the ark of God and the deaths of her father-in-law and her husband.
Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.
Lift up your heads, you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.
One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.
The voice of the LORD twists the oaks and strips the forests bare. And in his temple all cry, "Glory!"
