NEW WORLD TRANSLATION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES (2013 REVISION)

Psalms 24:1-10

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • The glorious King enters the gates

    • ‘To Jehovah belongs the earth’ (1)

Of David. A melody. 24  To Jehovah belong the earth and everything in it,+ The productive land and those dwelling on it.   For he has solidly fixed it on the seas+ And firmly established it on the rivers.   Who may ascend to the mountain of Jehovah,+ And who may stand up in his holy place?   Anyone with innocent hands and a pure heart,+ Who has not sworn a false oath by My life,* Nor taken an oath deceitfully.+   He will receive blessings from Jehovah+ And righteousness* from his God of salvation.+   This is the generation of those seeking him, Of those seeking your face, O God of Jacob. (Selah)   Lift up your heads, you gates;+ Open up,* you ancient doorways, That the glorious King may enter!+   Who is this glorious King? Jehovah, strong and mighty,+ Jehovah, mighty in battle.+   Lift up your heads, you gates;+ Open up, you ancient doorways, That the glorious King may enter! 10  Who is he, this glorious King? Jehovah of armies—he is the glorious King.+ (Selah)
