Book I
The King of Glory Entering Zion
A Psalm of David.
[1]  THE EARTH is Jehovah’s, and the fulness thereof;
The world, and they that dwell therein.
[2]  For he hath founded it upon the seas,
And established it upon the floods.
[3]  Who shall ascend into the hill of Jehovah?
And who shall stand in his holy place?
[4]  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart;
Who hath not lifted up his soul unto falsehood,
And hath not sworn deceitfully.
[5]  He shall receive a blessing from Jehovah,
And righteousness from the God of his salvation.
[6]  This is the generation of them that seek after him,
That seek thy face, even Jacob.  [Selah
[7]  Lift up your heads, O ye gates;
And be ye lifted up, ye everlasting 1 doors:
And the King of glory will come in.
[8]  Who is the King of glory?
Jehovah strong and mighty,
Jehovah mighty in battle.
[9]  Lift up your heads, O ye gates;
Yea, lift them up, ye everlasting 2 doors:
And the King of glory will come in.
[10]  Who is this King of glory?
Jehovah of hosts,
He is the King of glory.  [Selah
