GOD'S WORD® Translation
1[A psalm by David.] The earth and everything it contains are the LORD's. The world and all who live in it are his.
2He laid its foundation on the seas and set it firmly on the rivers.
3Who may go up the LORD's mountain? Who may stand in his holy place?
4[The one who] has clean hands and a pure heart and does not long for what is false or lie when he is under oath.
5[This person] will receive a blessing from the LORD and righteousness from God, his savior.
6This is the person who seeks him, who searches for the face of the God of Jacob. [Selah]
7Lift your heads, you gates. Be lifted, you ancient doors, so that the king of glory may come in.
8Who is this king of glory? The LORD, strong and mighty! The LORD, heroic in battle!
9Lift your heads, you gates. Be lifted, you ancient doors, so that the king of glory may come in.
10Who, then, is this king of glory? The LORD of Armies is the king of glory! [Selah]
