Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
The bird also has found a house, And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, Even Your altars, O LORD of hosts, My King and my God.

King James Bible
Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
Even a sparrow finds a home, and a swallow, a nest for herself where she places her young-- near Your altars, LORD of Hosts, my King and my God.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

yea, etc. Or, rather, Even as the sparrow findeth a house, and the swallow (or the ring-dove, according to some, but probably the bird which Forskal mentions among the migratory birds of Alexandria, by the name of Dururi) a nest for herself where she may lay her young, so I seek thine altars, O Jehovah God of hosts, my King and my God. That is, as nature inclines birds to seek and prepare their nests, so grace has taught me to desire thy altars, and to worship there.
