Psalms 24

Psalm 24

Of David. A psalm.

The earth is the  Lord’s and all that it holds,
the world and those who live in it.
For he founded it on the seas,
and on the floods he sustains it.

Who may ascend the hill of the  Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
The clean of hands, the pure of heart,
who sets not their heart upon sinful things,
nor swears with intent to deceive,
they win from the  Lord a blessing:
God is their champion and saviour.
Such must be those who resort to him,
and seek the face of the God of Jacob. (Selah)

Lift high your heads, you gates ---
Higher, you ancient doors;
welcome the glorious king.
“Who is the glorious king?”
“The  Lord strong and heroic,
the  Lord heroic in battle.”

Lift high your heads, you gates ---
Higher, you ancient doors;
welcome the glorious king.
10 “Who is the glorious king?”
“The  Lord, the God of hosts,
he is the glorious king.” (Selah)
