Psalm 24 serves as a majestic proclamation of God's sovereignty over the earth and its inhabitants. It begins by acknowledging God as the Creator, laying claim to His ownership of the world and all that resides within it. The chapter transitions to the moral qualifications for those who seek God's presence, emphasizing purity and integrity. The psalm concludes with a stirring call to open the gates for the entrance of the "King of Glory," a term that signifies God's victorious and powerful nature. The entire psalm functions as a reminder that the path to true communion with God lies through righteousness, while simultaneously declaring the universal reign of the Almighty.

Psalm 24

1  (A Psalm of David.) The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

2  For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

3  Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

4  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

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, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

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 this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9  Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10  Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
