Psalm 24

Psalm 24

Of David. A psalm.

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it;
for he founded it on the seas
    and established it on the waters.

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?
    Who may stand in his holy place?
The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,
    who does not trust in an idol
    or swear by a false god.[a]

They will receive blessing from the Lord
    and vindication from God their Savior.
Such is the generation of those who seek him,
    who seek your face, God of Jacob.[b][c]

Lift up your heads, you gates;
    be lifted up, you ancient doors,
    that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
    The Lord strong and mighty,
    the Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, you gates;
    lift them up, you ancient doors,
    that the King of glory may come in.
10 Who is he, this King of glory?
    The Lord Almighty—
    he is the King of glory.

New International Reader's Version

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.
