Amplified Bible

Psalm 24

The King of Glory Entering Zion.

[a]A Psalm of David.

1The earth [b]is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it,
The world, and those who dwell in it.

For He has founded it upon the seas
And established it upon the streams and the rivers.

Who may ascend onto the [c]mountain of the Lord?
And who may stand in His holy place?

He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who has not lifted up his soul to what is false,
Nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully.

He shall receive a blessing from the Lord,
And righteousness from the God of his salvation.

This is the generation (description) of those who diligently seek Him and require Him as their greatest need,
Who seek Your face, even [as did] Jacob. Selah.


Lift up your heads, O gates,
And be lifted up, ancient doors,
That the King of glory may come in.

Who is the King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty,
The Lord mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, O gates,
And lift them up, ancient doors,
That the King of glory may come in.
10 
Who is [He then] this King of glory?
The Lord of hosts,
He is the King of glory [who rules over all creation with His heavenly armies]. Selah.

Psalmen 24

1Een psalm van David.

De aarde en al haar rijkdom
zijn van de Here!
Hij drong het water terug,
zodat droog land tevoorschijn kwam.
Wie kan de berg van de Here beklimmen
en binnengaan in de plaats waar Hij woont?
Wie kan voor de Here staan?
Alleen zij die schone handen en zuivere harten hebben,
die zich niet inlaten met oneerlijkheid en leugens.
Zij zullen als een zegen van God
zijn goedheid in hun leven ervaren.
Die reikt Hij, hun verlosser, hun Zelf toe.
Zij mogen voor de Here komen staan
en Hem, de God van Jakob, hulde brengen.
Ga toch open, eeuwenoude poorten,
en laat de geëerde Koning binnen!
Wie die geëerde Koning is?
De Here, sterk en machtig,
onoverwinnelijk in de strijd!
Ja, zet de poorten wijd open
en laat de geëerde Koning binnengaan.
10 Wie die geëerde Koning is?
Hij is de Here van alle hemelse legers.
Hij is de Koning, die alle eer toekomt.
