Psalm 24

The King of Glory

A Psalm of David.

1 1The earth is the LORD's and the fullness thereof,a the world and those who dwell therein,
2 for he has 2founded it upon 3the seas and established it upon the rivers.
3 4Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his 5holy place?
4 6He who has 7clean hands and 8a pure heart, who does not 9lift up his soul to 10what is false and does not swear deceitfully.
5 He will receive 11blessing from the LORD and 12righteousness from 13the God of his salvation.
6 Such is 14the generation of those who seek him, who 15seek the face of the God of Jacob.b Selah
7 16Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that 17the King of glory may come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD, strong and mighty, the LORD, 18mighty 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? 19The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory! Selah
