Psalm 24

The King of Glory
A Psalm of David.
1 # Ps. 50:12; 89:11; Ex. 9:29; 19:5; Deut. 10:14; Job 41:11; Cited 1 Cor. 10:26 The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof,#24:1 Or and all that fills it
the world and those who dwell therein,
2for he has #Ps. 104:5; Job 38:6; Prov. 8:29 founded it upon #Ps. 136:6; Gen. 1:9the seas
and established it upon the rivers.
3 # For ver. 3-5, see Ps. 15:1-5 Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?
And who shall stand in his #Ps. 2:6holy place?
4 # [Deut. 10:12; Isa. 33:15, 16; Mic. 6:8] He who has #See Job 22:30 clean hands and #Ps. 73:1; Matt. 5:8 a pure heart,
who does not #[Ezek. 18:6] lift up his soul to #Ps. 31:6; 119:37what is false
and does not swear deceitfully.
5He will receive #[Gen. 22:17, 18] blessing from the Lord
and #Isa. 46:13; 56:1 righteousness from #Ps. 27:9; 38:22; 51:14; 88:1the God of his salvation.
6Such is #Ps. 14:5 the generation of those who seek him,
who #Ps. 27:8; 105:4seek the face of the God of Jacob.#24:6 Septuagint, Syriac, and two Hebrew manuscripts; Masoretic Text who seek your face, Jacob Selah
7 # [Ps. 118:19, 20; Isa. 26:2] Lift up your heads, O gates!
And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
that #[1 Cor. 2:8]the King of glory may come in.
8Who is this King of glory?
The Lord, strong and mighty,
the Lord, #[Ex. 15:3]mighty in battle!
9Lift up your heads, O gates!
And lift them up, O ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
10Who is this King of glory?
# Mal. 1:14 The Lord of hosts,
he is the King of glory! Selah
