24 1 Albeit the Lord God hath made, and governeth all the world, yet toward his chosen people, his gracious goodness doth most abundantly appear, in that among them he will have his dwelling place. Which thought it was appointed among the children of Abraham, yet only they do enter aright into this Sanctuary, which are the true worshippers of God, purged from the sinful filth of this world. 7 Finally he magnifieth God’s grace for the building of the Temple, to the end he might stir up all the faithful to the true service of God.
A Psalm of David.
1 The earth is the Lord’s, and all that therein is; the world and they that dwell therein.
2 For he hath founded it upon the [a]seas; and established it upon the floods.
3 Who shall ascend into the mountain of the Lord? and who shall stand in his holy place?
4 Even he that hath innocent hands, and a pure heart; which hath not lifted up his mind unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive a blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 This is the [b]generation of them that seek him, of them that seek thy face, this is Jacob. Selah.
7 [c]Lift up your heads ye gates, and be ye lifted up ye everlasting doors, and the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? the Lord, strong and mighty, even the Lord mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, ye gates, and lift up yourselves 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.
Psalm 24:2He noteth two things: the one, that the earth to man’s judgment seemeth above the waters: and next, that God miraculously preserveth the earth, that it is not drowned with the waters, which naturally are above it.
Psalm 24:6Though circumcision separate the carnal seed of Jacob, from the Gentiles, yet he that seeketh God, is the true Jacob and the very Israelite.
Psalm 24:7David desireth the building up of the Temple, wherein the glory of God should appear, and under the figure of this Temple, he also prayeth for the spiritual Temple, which is eternal, because of the promise which was made to the Temple, as it is written, Ps. 132:14.
