A Welcome for God into the Temple

A psalm of David.

24 The earth belongs to the Lord, and everything in it—
    the world and all its people.
He built it on the waters
    and set it on the rivers.

Who may go up on the mountain of the Lord?
    Who may stand in his holy Temple?
Only those with clean hands and pure hearts,
    who have not worshiped idols,
    who have not made promises in the name of a false god.
They will receive a blessing from the Lord;
    the God who saves them will declare them right.
They try to follow God;
    they look to the God of Jacob for help. Selah

Open up, you gates.
    Open wide, you aged doors
    and the glorious King will come in.
Who is this glorious King?
    The Lord, strong and mighty.
    The Lord, the powerful warrior.
Open up, you gates.
    Open wide, you aged doors
    and the glorious King will come in.
10 Who is this glorious King?
    The Lord All-Powerful—
    he is the glorious King. Selah
