The Book of Psalms

Psalm 23

Domini est terra.

Who are they that shall ascend to heaven: Christ's triumphant ascension thither.


1
On the first day of the week, a psalm for David. The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof: the world, and all they that dwell therein.

2
For he hath founded it upon the seas; and hath prepared it upon the rivers.

3
Who shall ascend into the mountain of the Lord: or who shall stand in his holy place?

4
The innocent in hands, and clean of heart, who hath not taken his soul in vain, nor sworn deceitfully to his neighbour.

5
He shall receive a blessing from the Lord, and mercy from God his Saviour.

6
This is the generation of them that seek him, of them that seek the face of the God of Jacob.

7
Lift up your gates, O ye princes, and be ye lifted up, O eternal gates: and the King of Glory shall enter in.

8
Who is this King of Glory? the Lord who is strong and mighty: the Lord mighty in battle.

9
Lift up your gates, O ye princes, and be ye lifted up, O eternal gates: and the King of Glory shall enter in.

10
Who is this King of Glory? the Lord of hosts, he is the King of Glory.
