Psalm 24
NET Bible

Psalm 24

A psalm of David.

1The Lord owns the earth and all it contains,

the world and all who live in it.

2For he set its foundation upon the seas,

and established it upon the ocean currents.

3Who is allowed to ascend the mountain of the Lord?

Who may go up to his holy dwelling place?

4The one whose deeds are blameless

and whose motives are pure,

who does not lie,

or make promises with no intention of keeping them.

5Such godly people are rewarded by the Lord,

and vindicated by the God who delivers them.

6Such purity characterizes the people who seek his favor,

Jacob’s descendants, who pray to him. (Selah)

7Look up, you gates!

Rise up, you eternal doors!

Then the majestic king will enter!

8Who is this majestic king?

The Lord who is strong and mighty!

The Lord who is mighty in battle!

9Look up, you gates!

Rise up, you eternal doors!

Then the majestic king will enter!

10Who is this majestic king?

The Lord who commands armies!

He is the majestic king! (Selah)
