(24) A Psalm for David on the first day of the week.
1 A Psalm for David on the first day of the week. The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof; the world, and all that dwell in it.
2 He has founded it upon the seas, and prepared it upon the rivers.
3 Who shall go up to the mountain of the Lord, and who shall stand in his holy place?
4 He that is innocent in his hands and pure in his heart; who has not lifted up his soul to vanity, nor sworn deceitfully * Or, against. to his neighbor.
5 He shall receive a blessing from the Lord, and mercy from God his Saviour.
6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek the face of the God of Jacob. Pause.
7 Lift up your gates, you° princes, and be you° lifted up, you° everlasting doors; and the king of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this king of Glory? the Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your gates, you° princes; and be you° lift up, you° everlasting doors; and the king of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this king of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is this king of glory.
*23:4 Or, against.
