Tehillim / Psalms 24, Part 1, The Gate of our Hearts and the King of Glory


This week’s study is from Tehillim / Psalms 24:1-10, David opens saying א  לְדָוִד מִזְמוֹר לַיהֹוָה הָאָרֶץ וּמְלוֹאָהּ תֵּבֵל וְישְׁבֵי בָהּ: A Psalm of David. 24:1 The earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains, The world, and those who dwell in it. (NASB)  Who is in control of this world? Is it God or is it the evil one? Yeshua said in Matthew 28:18 “ALL power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”  Here David says that the earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, he goes on to say ב   כִּי הוּא עַל-יַמִּים יְסָדָהּ וְעַל-נְהָרוֹת יְכוֹנְנֶהָ: 24:2 For He has founded it upon the seas And established it upon the rivers. (NASB)  The reason the earth is the Lord’s is because He is the one who formed the dry land and the seas and who established the rivers upon the land.  David says ג   מִי-יַעֲלֶה בְהַר יְהֹוָה וּמִי-יָקוּם בִּמְקוֹם קָדְשׁוֹ: ד   נְקִי כַפַּיִם וּבַר לֵבָב אֲשֶׁר לֹא-נָשָֹא לַשָּׁוְא נַפְשִׁי וְלֹא נִשְׁבַּע לְמִרְמָה: 24:3 Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? And who may stand in His holy place? 24:4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood And has not sworn deceitfully. (NASB)  Those who are able to stand in the presence of God do so with clean hand and a pure heart and are not lifted up in falsehood, lies, and deceit.  Such people will receive a blessing from the Lord (ה   יִשָּׂא בְרָכָה מֵאֵת יְהֹוָה וּצְדָקָה מֵאֱלֹהֵי יִשְׁעוֹ:, 24:5 He shall receive a blessing from the Lord And righteousness from the God of his salvation. NASB).  Read More here: Tehillim 24-Part1
