24 The earth belongs to the Lord, and ·everything in it [L its fullness]— the world and all its ·people [inhabitants]. 2 He ·built [founded] it on the waters and ·set [established] it on the rivers [Gen. 1:9–10; Is. 45:18].
3 Who may go up on the mountain of the Lord[C Zion, the location of the Temple]? Who may stand in his holy ·Temple [L place]? 4 Only those with clean hands and pure hearts [C innocent in actions and thoughts], who have not ·worshiped idols [L lifted their souls to false things], who have not made promises ·in the name of a false god [or deceitfully]. 5 They will receive a blessing from the Lord; the God who ·saves [rescues; T delivers] them will ·declare them right [vindicate them]. 6 ·They try to follow God [L This is the generation/people of those who seek him]; they ·look to the God of Jacob for help [L search for your face, O God of Jacob]. ·Selah[Interlude]
7 ·Open up [L Lift up your heads], you gates. ·Open wide [L Be lifted up], you ·aged [ancient] doors and the ·glorious King [King of glory] will come in. 8 Who is this ·glorious King [King of glory]? The Lord, strong and mighty. The Lord, ·the powerful warrior [mighty in battle]. 9 ·Open up [L Lift up your heads], you gates. ·Open wide [L Be lifted up], you ·aged [ancient] doors and the ·glorious King [King of glory] will come in. 10 Who is this ·glorious King [King of glory]? The Lord ·All-Powerful [of Heaven’s Armies/T Hosts]— he is the ·glorious King [King of glory]. ·Selah[Interlude]
