International Standard Version Par ▾ 

A Davidic Psalm.

A Song for the King of Glory

1The earth and everything in it exists for the LORD—

the world and those who live in it.

2Indeed, he founded it upon the seas,

he established it upon deep waters.a

3Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD?b

Who may stand in his Holy Place?

4The one who has innocent hands and a pure heart;

the person who does not delight in what is false

and does not swear an oath deceitfully.

5This personc will receive blessing from the LORD

and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6This is the generation that seeks him.

Those who seek your face

are the true seed ofd Jacob.


7Lift up your heads,e gates!

Be lifted up, ancient doors,

so the King of Glory may come in.

8Who is the King of Glory?

The LORD strong and mighty,

the LORD, mighty in battle.

9Lift up your heads,f gates!

Be lifted up, ancient doors,

so the King of Glory may come in.

10Who is he, this King of Glory?

The LORD of the heavenly armies—

He is the King of Glory.
