Psalms 24
RSV-CI
24
A Psalm of David.
1 # 1 Cor 10.26. The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof,
the world and those who dwell therein;
2for he has founded it upon the seas,
and established it upon the rivers.
3Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?
And who shall stand in his holy place?
4 # Mt 5.8. He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not lift up his soul to what is false,
and does not swear deceitfully.
5He will receive blessing from the Lord,
and vindication from the God of his salvation.
6Such is the generation of those who seek him,
who seek the face of the God of Jacob.#24.6 Gk Syr: Heb thy face, O Jacob Selah
7Lift up your heads, O gates!
and be lifted up, O ancient doors!
that the King of glory may come in.
8Who is the King of glory?
The Lord, strong and mighty,
the Lord, mighty in battle!
9Lift up your heads, O gates!
and be lifted up,#24.9 Gk Syr Jerome Tg Compare verse 7: Heb lift up O ancient doors!
that the King of glory may come in.
10Who is this King of glory?
The Lord of hosts,
he is the King of glory! Selah
