Psalms 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.
Or swear falsely

They will receive blessing from the  Lord
and vindication from God their Saviour.
Such is the generation of those who seek him,
who seek your face, God of Jacob.
Two Hebrew manuscripts and Syriac (see also Septuagint); most Hebrew manuscripts face, Jacob

The Hebrew has Selah (a word of uncertain meaning) here and at the end of verse 10.

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.
