Psalm 24
A psalm of David.
24:1 The LORD owns the earth and all it contains,
the world and all who live in it.
24:2 For he set its foundation upon the seas,
and established it upon the ocean currents.
24:3 Who is allowed to ascend the mountain of the LORD?
Who may go up to his holy dwelling place?
24:4 The one whose deeds are blameless
and whose motives are pure,
who does not lie,
or make promises with no intention of keeping them.
24:5 Such godly people are rewarded by the LORD,
and vindicated by the God who delivers them.
24:6 Such purity characterizes the people who seek his favor,
Jacob’s descendants, who pray to him. (Selah)
24:7 Look up, you gates!
Rise up, you eternal doors!
Then the majestic king will enter!
24:8 Who is this majestic king?
The LORD who is strong and mighty!
The LORD who is mighty in battle!
24:9 Look up, you gates!
Rise up, you eternal doors!
Then the majestic king will enter!
24:10 Who is this majestic king?
The LORD who commands armies!
He is the majestic king! (Selah)
