New English Translation
A psalm of David.
1 The LORD owns the earth and all it contains, the world and all who live in it.
2 For he set its foundation upon the seas, and established it upon the ocean currents.
3 Who is allowed to ascend the mountain of the LORD? Who may go up to his holy dwelling place?
4 The one whose deeds are blameless and whose motives are pure, who does not lie, or make promises with no intention of keeping them.
5 Such godly people are rewarded by the LORD, and vindicated by the God who delivers them.
6 Such purity characterizes the people who seek his favor, Jacob's descendants, who pray to him. (Selah)
7 Look up, you gates! Rise up, you eternal doors! Then the majestic king will enter!
8 Who is this majestic king? The LORD who is strong and mighty! The LORD who is mighty in battle!
9 Look up, you gates! Rise up, you eternal doors! Then the majestic king will enter!
10 Who is this majestic king? The LORD who commands armies! He is the majestic king! (Selah)
King James Version
A Psalm of David.
1 The earth is the LORD'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 the LORD? or 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 vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the 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.
7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall 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 ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
