Psalm 24

                                                            Of David. A psalm.

1 The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,

the world, and all who live in it;

2 for he founded it upon the seas

and established it upon the waters.

3 Who may ascend the hill of the Lord?

who may stand in his holy place?

4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,

who does not lift up his soul to an idol

or swear by what is false.

5 He will receive blessing from the Lord

and vindication from God his savior.

6 Such is the generation of those who seek

him,

who seek your face, O God of Jacob.

7 Lift up your heads, O you gates;

be lifted up, you ancient doors,

that the King of glory may come in.

8 Who is the King of glory?

The Lord strong and mighty,

the Lord mighty in battle.

9 lift up your heads, O 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.
