Psalm 24 English Standard Version

The King of Glory

24 1  The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof,[1] the world and those who dwell therein, 2  for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers.

3  Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? 4  He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully. 5  He will receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6  Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob.[2] Selah

7  Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. 8  Who is this King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle! 9  Lift up your heads, O gates! And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. 10  Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory! Selah
