Psalm 24 New International Version

The King of Glory

24 The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; 2  for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.

3  Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? 4  The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god.[1] 5  They will receive blessing from the Lordand vindication from God their Savior. 6  Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob.[2][3]

7  Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you 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, you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. 10  Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty- he is the King of glory.
