The Psalms

Psalm 24

God's lordship in the world, 1, 2. The citizens of his spiritual kingdom, 3-6. An exhortation to receive him, 7-10.

1 [A Psalm of David.] The earth is the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof, the world, and those who dwell therein.

2 For he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the floods.

3 Who shall ascend upon the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his holy place?

4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6 This is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, O Jacob. [Selah.]

7 Lift up your heads, O gates, and be lifted up, you everlasting doors, and the King of glory shall come in.

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

9 Lift up your heads, O gates, even lift them up, you everlasting doors, and the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. [Selah.]
