Bible: Psalm 24

Psalm 24 1 

24:1 A psalm of David.

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 2  it upon the ocean currents. 3 

24:3 Who is allowed to ascend 4  the mountain of the Lord? 5 

Who may go up to his holy dwelling place?

24:4 The one whose deeds are blameless

and whose motives are pure, 6 

who does not lie, 7 

or make promises with no intention of keeping them. 8 

24:5 Such godly people are rewarded by the Lord, 9 

and vindicated by the God who delivers them. 10 

24:6 Such purity characterizes the people who seek his favor,

Jacob’s descendants, who pray to him. 11  (Selah)

24:7 Look up, 12  you gates!

Rise up, 13  you eternal doors!

Then the majestic king 14  will enter! 15 

24:8 Who is this majestic king? 16 

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! 17 

He is the majestic king! (Selah)
