Psalm 24:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Psalm 24[a]

The Glory of God in Procession to Zion

A psalm of David.

I

The earth is the Lord’s and all it holds,
    the world and those who dwell in it.
For he founded it on the seas,
    established it over the rivers.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 24 The Psalm apparently accompanied a ceremony of the entry of God (invisibly enthroned upon the ark), followed by the people, into the Temple. The Temple commemorated the creation of the world (Ps 24:1–2). The people had to affirm their fidelity before being admitted into the sanctuary (Ps 24:3–6; cf. Ps 15). A choir identifies the approaching God and invites the very Temple gates to bow down in obeisance (Ps 24:7–10).
