Monday Morning Scripture (Wk46/2021) – Psalm 24

The King of Glory Entering Zion.

A Psalm of David.

1 The earth [b]is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it, the world, and those who dwell in it.

2 For He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the streams and the rivers.

3 Who may ascend onto the [c]mountain of the Lord? And who may stand in His holy place?

4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to what is false, nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully.

5 He shall receive a blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6 This is the generation (description) of those who diligently seek Him and require Him as their greatest need, who seek Your face, even [as did] Jacob. Selah.

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

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

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

10 Who is [He then] this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory [who rules over all creation with His heavenly armies]. Selah.

Psalm 24:1-10 (AMP)
