24
(A psalm by David.)
Who Can Enter the Lord's Temple?
1 # 1 Co 10.26 The earth and everything on it,
including its people,
belong to the Lord.
The world and its people
belong to him.
2The Lord placed it all
on the oceans and rivers.
3Who may climb the Lord's hill#24.3 the Lord's hill: The hill in Jerusalem where the temple was built.
or stand in his holy temple?
4 # Mt 5.8 Only those who do right
for the right reasons,
and don't worship idols
or tell lies under oath.
5The Lord God, who saves them,
will bless and reward them,
6because they worship and serve
the God of Jacob.#24.6 worship … Jacob: Two ancient translations; Hebrew “worship God and serve the descendants of Jacob.”
7Open the ancient gates,
so that the glorious king
may come in.
8Who is this glorious king?
He is our Lord, a strong
and mighty warrior.
9Open the ancient gates,
so that the glorious king
may come in.
10Who is this glorious king?
He is our Lord,
the All-Powerful!
