Psalms 24
ICB
24
A Welcome for God into the Temple
A song of David.
1The earth and everything in it belong to the Lord.
The world and all its people belong to him.
2He built it on the waters.
He set it on the rivers.
3Who may go up on the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy Temple?
4Only those with clean hands and pure hearts.
They must not have worshiped idols.
They must not have made promises in the name of a false god.
5It is they who will receive a blessing from the Lord.
The God who saves them will declare them right.
6They try to follow God.
They look to the God of Jacob for help. Selah
7Open up, you gates.
Open wide, you aged doors.
Then the glorious king will come in.
8Who is this glorious king?
The Lord, strong and mighty.
The Lord, the powerful warrior.
9Open up, you gates.
Open wide, you aged doors.
Then the glorious king will come in.
10Who is this glorious king?
The Lord of heaven’s armies—
he is the glorious king. Selah
