Psalms 24

1Of David. A psalm. The earth is the Lord's and all that it holds, the world and those who live in it. 2For he founded it on the seas, and on the floods he sustains it. 3Who may ascend the hill of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? 4The clean of hands, the pure of heart, who sets not their heart upon sinful things, nor swears with intent to deceive: 5they win from the Lord a blessing: God is their champion and saviour. 6Such must be those who resort to him, and seek the face of the God of Jacob. (Selah) 7Lift high your heads, you gates — Higher, you ancient doors; welcome the glorious king. 8“Who is the glorious king?” “The Lord strong and heroic, the Lord heroic in battle.” 9Lift high your heads, you gates — Higher, you ancient doors; welcome the glorious king. 10“Who is the glorious king?” “The Lord, the God of hosts, he is the glorious king.” (Selah)
