Psalms - Chapter 24




The King James Version Basic English Version (BBE)

1 The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

1 <A Psalm. Of David.> The earth is the Lord's, with all its wealth; the world and all the people living in it.

2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

2 For by him it was based on the seas, and made strong on the deep rivers.

3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

3 Who may go up into the hill of the Lord? and who may come into his holy place?

4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

4 He who has clean hands and a true heart; whose desire has not gone out to foolish things, who has not taken a false oath.

5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

5 He will have blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

6 This is the generation of those whose hearts are turned to you, even to your face, O God of Jacob. (Selah.)

7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

7 Let your heads be lifted up, O doors; be lifted up, O you eternal doors: that the King of glory may come in.

8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

8 Who is the King of glory? The Lord of strength and power, the Lord strong in war.

9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

9 Let your heads be lifted up, O doors; let them be lifted up, O you eternal doors: that the King of glory may come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

10 Who is the King of glory? The Lord of armies, he is the King of glory. (Selah.)
