The Passion Translation
7 So wake up, you living gateways!
Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny!
Welcome the King of Glory,
for he is about to come through you.
8 You ask, “Who is this Glory-King?”
The Lord, armed and ready for battle,
the Mighty One, invincible in every way!
9 So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice![a]
Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny!
Here he comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in.
- Psalm 24:9 The Hebrew text says, “Lift up your heads,” which is a figure of speech for rejoicing. We are the living gateways who rejoice as the Lord draws near to us from his temple.
