Psalm 24

Psalm 24

A psalm of David.

The earth belongs to the Lord. And so does everything in it.
    The world belongs to him. And so do all those who live in it.
He set it firmly on the oceans.
    He made it secure on the waters.

Who can go up to the temple on the mountain of the Lord?
    Who can stand in his holy place?
Anyone who has clean hands and a pure heart.
    Anyone who does not trust in the statue of a god.
    Anyone who doesn’t use the name of that god when he makes a promise.
People like that will receive the Lord’s blessing.
    When God their Savior hands down his sentence, it will be in their favor.
The people who look to God are like that.
    God of Jacob, they look to you.

Open wide, you gates.
    Open up, you ancient doors.
    Then the King of glory will come in.
Who is the King of glory?
    The Lord, who is strong and mighty.
    The Lord, who is mighty in battle.
Open wide, you gates.
    Open wide, you ancient doors.
    Then the King of glory will come in.
10 Who is he, this King of glory?
    The Lord who rules over all.
    He is the King of glory.

Psalm 24

The King of Glory Entering Zion.

A Psalm of David.

1The earth is the Lord’s, and [a]all it contains,
The world, and those who dwell in it.
For He has founded it upon the seas
And established it upon the rivers.
Who may ascend into the hill 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 [b]to falsehood
And has not sworn deceitfully.
He shall receive a blessing from the Lord
And [c]righteousness from the God of his salvation.
[d]This is the generation of those who seek Him,
Who seek Your face—even Jacob. [e]Selah.

Lift up your heads, O gates,
And be lifted up, O [f]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, O [g]ancient doors,
That the King of glory may come in!
10 Who is this King of glory?
The Lord of hosts,
He is the King of glory. Selah.
