1
¶ THE earth is the LORD’S and the fulness thereof;
the world and they that dwell therein.
2
For he has set the foundation thereof in the sea, and has furnished it with rivers.
3
¶ Who shall ascend into the mountain of the LORD?
or who shall stand in his holy place?
4
He who has clean hands and a pure heart;
who has not sworn by his soul falsely, nor taken an oath deceitfully.
5
He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from God our Saviour.
6
This is the generation of them that seek thy face, that proclaim thy countenance, O thou God of Jacob.
7
Lift up your heads, O you gates;
and be lifted up, O everlasting 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.
9
Lift up your heads, O you gates;
and be lifted up, O everlasting 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 forever.
