Psalm 24

A Psalm of David.

1The earth is Jehovah’s, and the fulness thereof;

The world, and they that dwell therein.

2For he hath founded it upon the seas,

And established it upon the floods.

3Who shall ascend into the hill of Jehovah?

And who shall stand in his holy place?

4He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart;

Who hath not lifted up his soul unto falsehood,

And hath not sworn deceitfully.

5He shall receive a blessing from Jehovah,

And righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6This is the generation of them that seek after him,

That seek thy face, even Jacob. Selah

7Lift up your heads, O ye gates;

And be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors:

And the King of glory will come in.

8Who is the King of glory?

Jehovah strong and mighty,

Jehovah mighty in battle.

9Lift up your heads, O ye gates;

Yea, lift them up, ye everlasting doors:

And the King of glory will come in.

10Who is this King of glory?

Jehovah of hosts,

He is the King of glory. Selah


About American Standard Version

The ASV has long been regarded by many scholars as the most literal English translation since the King James Version—maybe the most literal translation ever. This has made the translation very popular for careful English Bible study, but not for ease of reading. While the KJV was translated entirely from “western manuscripts,” the ASV 1901 was influenced also by the older “eastern manuscripts” that form the basis for most of our modern English translations. Because the ASV 1901 is very difficult to find in print, Logos is pleased to be able to preserve and distribute this significant work. This is an excellent choice for comparative English study.
