Psalm 24

The King of Glory and His Kingdom

A Psalm of David.

1 The aearth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness,

The world and those who dwell therein.

2 For He has bfounded it upon the seas,

And established it upon the 1waters.

3 cWho may ascend into the hill of the Lord?

Or who may stand in His holy place?

4 He who has dclean hands and ea pure heart,

Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol,

Nor fsworn deceitfully.

5 He shall receive blessing from the Lord,

And righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6 This is Jacob, the generation of those who gseek Him,

Who seek Your face.


7 hLift up your heads, O you gates!

And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!

iAnd the King of glory shall come in.

8 Who is this King of glory?

The Lord strong and mighty,

The Lord mighty in jbattle.

9 Lift up your heads, O you gates!

Lift up, you 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.



About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
