Psalm 24 A Psalm of David. 24 1THE EARTH is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it, the world and they who dwell in it. 2For He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the currents and the rivers. 3Who shall go up into the mountain of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His Holy Place? 4He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted himself up to falsehood or to what is false, nor sworn deceitfully. 5He shall receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6This is the generation [description] of those who seek Him [who inquire of and for Him and of necessity require Him], who seek Your face, [O God of] Jacob. Selah [pause, and think of that]! 7Lift up your heads, O you gates; and be lifted up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in. 8Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. 9Lift up your heads, O you gates; yes, lift them up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in. 10Who is [He then] this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah [pause, and think of that]!
