Psalm 24

  1. A Psalm. Pertaining to Dauid. On the first of the sabbaths.
    The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness,
    the inhabited world and all those who inhabit it;
  2. He himself founded it on seas
    and prepared it on rivers.
  3. Who shall ascend onto the mountain of the Lord?
    And who shall stand in his holy place?
  4. One with innocent hands and a clean heart;
    he who did not occupy his soul with vanity
    and did not swear deceitfully to his neighbor.
  5. He it is that will receive blessing from the Lord
    and mercy from his divine savior.
  6. This is the generation of people who seek him,
    seeking the countenance of the God of Iakob.

    And be raised up, O eternal gates!
    And the King of glory will enter.

    The Lord of hosts,
    he is the King of glory.
