Psalm 24 The Voice (VOICE)

Psalm 24

A song of David.

The earth and all that’s upon it belong to the Eternal.
    The world is His, with every living creature on it.
With seas as foundations and rivers as boundaries,
    He shaped the continents, fashioned the earth.

Who can possibly ascend the mountain of the Eternal?
    Who can stand before Him in sacred spaces?
Only those whose hands have been washed and hearts made pure,
    men and women who are not given to lies or deception.
The Eternal will stand close to them with blessing and mercy at hand,
    and the God who redeems will right what has been wrong.
These are the people who chase after Him;
    [like Jacob, they look for the face of God].[a]

[pause][b]

City gates—open wide!
    Ancient doors—stand back!
    For the glorious King shall soon pass your way.
Who is the glorious King?
    The Eternal who is powerful
    and mightily equipped for battle.
City gates—open wide!
    Ancient doors—stand back!
    For the glorious King shall soon pass your way.
10 Who is the glorious King?
    The Eternal, Commander of heaven’s army,
    He is the glorious King.

[pause]
