Psalm 24

Chapter Summary

The King Arrives

The first part of this psalm praises the great Creator and reminds us that all that exists is His alone. It points out who may stand in God’s holy place—and Jesus is the only One who meets these criteria. Then it tells Part 3 of the three-psalm story: a beautiful image of Jesus arriving back in heaven after what must have seemed like a long 34 years, even to immortal beings! The angels set up an antiphonal chant to welcome Him—the Victor! Heaven is open to God’s children now, and in Christ, we can have clean hands and a pure heart!

Hallelujah, Lord! You did it, You won, and in You, I can win, though I don’t deserve it. Hallelujah, amen!

Psalm 24


24 The earth is the Lord‘s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

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

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

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

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

This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

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

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

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.
