Of David. A melody. 24 To Jehovah belong the earth and that which fills it,+The productive land* and those dwelling in it.+ 2 For upon the seas he himself has solidly fixed it,+And upon the rivers* he keeps it firmly established.+ 3 Who may ascend into the mountain of Jehovah,+And who may rise up in his holy place?+ 4 Anyone innocent in his hands and clean in heart,+Who has not carried My* soul* to sheer worthlessness,+Nor taken an oath deceitfully.+ 5 He will carry away blessing from Jehovah+And righteousness from his God of salvation.+ 6 This is the generation of those seeking him,Of those searching for your face, O [God of] Jacob.*+ Seʹlah. 7 Raise YOUR heads, O YOU gates,+And raise yourselves up, O YOU long-lasting* entrances,+That the glorious King may come in!+ 8 Who, then, is this glorious King?+Jehovah strong and mighty,+Jehovah mighty in battle.*+ 9 Raise YOUR heads, O YOU gates;+Yes, raise [them] up, O YOU long-lasting entrances,That the glorious King may come in!+ 10 Who, then, is he, this glorious King?Jehovah of armies*—he is the glorious King.+ Seʹlah.
