The King of Glory

A Psalm of David.

24 (A)The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof,[a]
    the world and those who dwell therein,
for he has (B)founded it upon (C)the seas
    and established it upon the rivers.

(D)Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?
    And who shall stand in his (E)holy place?
(F)He who has (G)clean hands and (H)a pure heart,
    who does not (I)lift up his soul to (J)what is false
    and does not swear deceitfully.
He will receive (K)blessing from the Lord
    and (L)righteousness from (M)the God of his salvation.
Such is (N)the generation of those who seek him,
    who (O)seek the face of the God of Jacob.[b] Selah

(P)Lift up your heads, O gates!
    And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
    that (Q)the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
    The Lord, strong and mighty,
    the Lord, (R)mighty in battle!
Lift up your heads, O gates!
    And lift them up, O ancient doors,
    that the King of glory may come in.
10 Who is this King of glory?
    (S)The Lord of hosts,
    he is the King of glory! Selah

Teach Me Your Paths

[c] Of David.

25 To you, O Lord, I (T)lift up my soul.
O my God, in you I (U)trust;
    (V)let me not be put to shame;
    (W)let not my enemies exult over me.
Indeed, (X)none who wait for you shall be put to shame;
    they shall be ashamed who are (Y)wantonly (Z)treacherous.

(AA)Make me to know your ways, O Lord;
    teach me your paths.
Lead me in your (AB)truth and teach me,
    for you are the God of my salvation;
    for you I wait all the day long.

Remember your (AC)mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love,
    (AD)for they have been from of old.
Remember not (AE)the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
    according to your (AF)steadfast love remember me,
    for the sake of your goodness, O Lord!

(AG)Good and upright is the Lord;
    therefore he (AH)instructs sinners in the way.
He leads the humble in what is right,
    and teaches the humble his way.
10 All the paths of the Lord are (AI)steadfast love and faithfulness,
    for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.

11 For your (AJ)name's sake, O Lord,
    pardon my guilt, for it is (AK)great.
12 Who is the man who fears the Lord?
    Him (AL)will he instruct in the way that he should choose.
13 His soul shall (AM)abide in well-being,
    and his (AN)offspring (AO)shall inherit the land.
14 (AP)The friendship[d] of the Lord is for those who fear him,
    and he makes known to them his covenant.
15 My (AQ)eyes are ever toward the Lord,
    for he will (AR)pluck my feet out of the net.

16 (AS)Turn to me and be gracious to me,
    for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged;
    bring me out of my distresses.
18 (AT)Consider my affliction and my trouble,
    and forgive all my sins.

19 Consider how many are my foes,
    and with what violent hatred they hate me.
20 Oh, guard my soul, and deliver me!
    (AU)Let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
21 May integrity and uprightness preserve me,
    for I wait for you.

22 (AV)Redeem Israel, O God,
    out of all his troubles.

I Will Bless the Lord

Of David.

26 (AW)Vindicate me, O Lord,
    for I have (AX)walked in my integrity,
    and I have (AY)trusted in the Lord without wavering.
(AZ)Prove me, O Lord, and try me;
    test my heart and (BA)my mind.[e]
For your (BB)steadfast love is before my eyes,
    and I (BC)walk in your (BD)faithfulness.

I do not (BE)sit with men of (BF)falsehood,
    nor do I consort with hypocrites.
I (BG)hate the assembly of evildoers,
    and I will not sit with the wicked.

I (BH)wash my hands in innocence
    and go around your altar, O Lord,
proclaiming thanksgiving aloud,
    and telling all your (BI)wondrous deeds.

O Lord, I (BJ)love the habitation of your house
    and the place where your glory dwells.
(BK)Do not sweep my soul away with sinners,
    nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 in whose hands are evil devices,
    and whose right hands are full of (BL)bribes.

11 But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
    redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12 My foot stands on (BM)level ground;
    in (BN)the great assembly I will bless the Lord.

I and the Father Are One

22 At that time the Feast of Dedication took place at Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was walking in the temple, (A)in the colonnade of Solomon. 24 So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are (B)the Christ, (C)tell us plainly.” 25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. (D)The works that I do (E)in my Father's name bear witness about me, 26 but (F)you do not believe because you are not among my sheep. 27 (G)My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 (H)I give them eternal life, and (I)they will never perish, and (J)no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, (K)who has given them to me,[a] (L)is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of (M)the Father's hand. 30 (N)I and the Father are one.”

31 (O)The Jews picked up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?” 33 The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but (P)for blasphemy, because you, being a man, (Q)make yourself God.” 34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in (R)your Law, (S)‘I said, you are gods’? 35 If he called them gods to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be (T)broken— 36 do you say of him whom (U)the Father consecrated and (V)sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because (W)I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? 37 (X)If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; 38 but if I do them, (Y)even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that (Z)the Father is in me and I am in the Father.” 39 (AA)Again they sought to arrest him, but he escaped from their hands.

40 He went away again across the Jordan to the place (AB)where John had been baptizing at first, and there he remained. 41 And many came to him. And they said, “John did no sign, but (AC)everything that John said about this man was true.” 42 And (AD)many believed in him there.
