Psalm 24

Greetings!

This is such a simple but powerful Psalm.  The world desparately wants to forget that everything and everyone in the earth (and the universe, for that matter) belong to God.  If only they would turn to him they would know what a truly abundant and real life is all about. 

This Psalm has inspired at least two songs that I know of – “King of Glory” by Third Day (I think that is the title) and “Give us clean hands.” 

May we all seek his face today – He is the King of Glory, our Lord and Savior!

Psalm 24

Of David.

1 The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;

2 for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.

3 Who may ascend the hill of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place?

4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false.

5 He will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God his Savior.

6 Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, O God of Jacob. Selah

7 Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.

8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, O you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.

10 Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty— he is the King of glory. Selah
