Psalm 24

 

Of David.  A psalm.

 

 

1                    The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;

 

2                    for He founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.

 

3                    Who may ascend the hill of the LORD?  Who may stand in His holy place?

 

4                    He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false. [a]

 

5                    He will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God his Savior.

 

6                    Such is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek your face, O God of Jacob. [b]

Selah

 

7                    Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.

 

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

 

9                    Lift up your heads, O 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.

Selah
