Psalm 24

A psalm of David.

1 The earth is the LORD's and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants too.
2 Because God is the one who established it on the seas; God set it firmly on the waters.
3 Who can ascend the LORD's mountain? Who can stand in his holy sanctuary?
4 Only the one with clean hands and a pure heart; the one who hasn't made false promises, the one who hasn't sworn dishonestly.
5 That kind of person receives blessings from the LORD and righteousness from the God who saves.
6 And that's how things are with the generation that seeks him— that seeks the face of Jacob's God. Selah
7 Mighty gates: lift up your heads! Ancient doors: rise up high! So the glorious king can enter!
8 Who is this glorious king? The LORD—strong and powerful! The LORD—powerful in battle!
9 Mighty gates: lift up your heads! Ancient doors: rise up high! So the glorious king can enter!
10 Who is this glorious king? The LORD of heavenly forces— he is the glorious king! Selah
