Psalm 24

A psalm by David.

The earth and everything it contains are Yahweh’s.
    The world and all who live in it are his.
He laid its foundation on the seas
    and set it firmly on the rivers.

Who may go up Yahweh’s mountain?
    Who may stand in his holy place?
The one who has clean hands and a pure heart
    and does not long for what is false[a]
        or lie when he is under oath.
This person will receive a blessing from Yahweh
    and righteousness from Elohim, his savior.
This is the person who seeks him,
    who searches for the face of the El of Jacob.[b] Selah

Lift your heads, you gates.
    Be lifted, you ancient doors,
    so that the Melek of glory may come in.

Who is this Melek of glory?
    Yahweh, strong and mighty!
    Yahweh, heroic in battle!

Lift your heads, you gates.
    Be lifted, you ancient doors,
    so that the Melek of glory may come in.

10 Who, then, is this Melek of glory?
    Yahweh Tsebaoth is the Melek of glory! Selah
