Psalm 24

Domini est terra

  1. THE earth is the Lord's, and all that therein is: the compass of the world, and they that dwell therein.
  2. For he hath founded it upon the seas: and prepared it upon the floods.
  3. Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord: or who shall rise up in his holy place?
  4. Even he that hath clean hands, and a pure heart: and that hath not lift up his mind unto vanity, nor sworn to deceive his neighbour.
  5. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord: and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
  6. This is the generation of them that seek him: even of them that seek thy face, O Jacob.
  7. Lift up your heads, O ye gates, and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors: and the King of glory shall come in.
  8. Who is the King of glory: it is the Lord strong and mighty, even the Lord mighty in battle.
  9. Lift up your heads, O ye gates, and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors: and the King of glory shall come in.
  10. Who is the King of glory: even the Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.

  2. Examine me, O Lord, and prove me: try out my reins and my heart.
  3. For thy loving-kindness is ever before mine eyes: and I will walk in thy truth.
  4. I have not dwelt with vain persons: neither will I have fellowship with the deceitful.
  5. I have hated the congregation of the wicked: and will not sit among the ungodly.

  12. My foot standeth right: I will praise the Lord in the congregations.
