Psalm 24

The King of Glory

A Psalm of David.

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

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

that l the King of glory may come in.
8 Who is this King of glory?
The Lord, strong and mighty,
the Lord, m 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?
n The Lord of hosts,
he is the King of glory! Selah
