24 A Psalm of David. To Jehovah [is] the earth and its fulness, The world and the inhabitants in it.

For He on the seas hath founded it, And on the floods He doth establish it.

Who goeth up into the hill of Jehovah? And who riseth up in His holy place?

The clean of hands, and pure of heart, Who hath not lifted up to vanity his soul, Nor hath sworn to deceit.

He beareth away a blessing from Jehovah, Righteousness from the God of his salvation.

This [is] a generation of those seeking Him. Seeking Thy face, O Jacob! Selah.

Lift up, O gates, your heads, And be lifted up, O doors age-during, And come in doth the king of glory!

Who [is] this -- `the king of glory?' Jehovah -- strong and mighty, Jehovah, the mighty in battle.

Lift up, O gates, your heads, And be lifted up, O doors age-during, And come in doth the king of glory!

10 Who [is] He -- this `king of glory?' Jehovah of hosts -- He [is] the king of glory! Selah.

Psalm 24

Of David. A psalm.

The earth is the Lord’s,(A) and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it;(B)
for he founded it on the seas
    and established it on the waters.(C)

Who may ascend the mountain(D) of the Lord?
    Who may stand in his holy place?(E)
The one who has clean hands(F) and a pure heart,(G)
    who does not trust in an idol(H)
    or swear by a false god.[a]

They will receive blessing(I) from the Lord
    and vindication(J) from God their Savior.
Such is the generation of those who seek him,
    who seek your face,(K) God of Jacob.[b][c]

Lift up your heads, you gates;(L)
    be lifted up, you ancient doors,
    that the King(M) of glory(N) may come in.(O)
Who is this King of glory?
    The Lord strong and mighty,(P)
    the Lord mighty in battle.(Q)
Lift up your heads, 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(R)
    he is the King of glory.
