A Mizmor of David

Psalm 24

 

Of YAHUWAH

Exists the earth:

The ground,

The continents,

And the contents therein—

The full number of them—

Belong to Him.

The inhabited lands

And all those who dwell therein

Are also His.

 

For the firmly fixed Authority,

Has placed it

Upon the foaming seas;

He has erected it

Upon the flowing streams

He caused it to exist.

It remains.

 

What person

Can go up

Or be carried aloft

Unto the Mountain of YAHUWAH?

Indeed, who shall ascend

Unto the Qodesh,

Set-Apart Dwelling,

The undefiled place

Of His abode?

 

The one who is free from blame.

He whose hands

And works are pure;

In the curved hollow of the palm

He carries no guilt;

The heart,

The inner workings

Of his will and purpose,

And the mode of his actions

Exist blameless.

His nephesh—

His living, breathing,

Self,

The inner workings

Of his will and purpose—

And his strength

Are not lifted up

Unto vanity or empty idols.

This one does not raise himself

Toward calamity and ruin;

He who has never

Given allegiance

Or sworn deceitfully

Unto idols.

 

He shall bear up

The burden of prosperity.

YAHUWAH shall stoop

And place a gift

At this one’s feet.

Yes, he shall receive

Tsedekkah,

From ALOHIM

His YESHUA.

 

This circuit of an age

As it winds round and round,

As one generation tramples

Upon another,

As the path is searched out

And these seek

Thy face, O, Ya’aqob!

 

Selah.

[A dramatic pause in the music]

 

Lift up, O, gates!

Let the entrance be taken up!

Let the highest

And the supreme

Be carried away!

Lift up the entrance

Of the mouth

Which has endured

From ancient time,

From as far as one can

See or perceive,

To the edge of the horizon

And beyond!

And shall come in

Melek Ha’Kabod,

The King of Honor and Abundance,

Of Heart and Splendor!

 

Who is this Melek Ha’Kabod?

Who is this King,

Resplendent and Precious?

YAHUWAH, Strong and Powerful!

YAHUWAH, our Valiant Leader,

Victorious in battle!

 

Lift up, O, gates!

Let the entrance be taken up!

Let the highest

And the supreme

Be carried away!

Lift up the entrance

Of the mouth

Which has endured

From ancient time,

From as far as one can

See or perceive,

To the edge of the horizon

And beyond.

And shall come in

Melek Ha’Kabod,

The King of Honor and Abundance,

Of Heart and Splendor!

 

Who is this Melek Ha’Kabod?

Who is this King,

Resplendent and Precious?

YAHUWAH, Strong and Powerful!

YAHUWAH, our Valiant Leader,

Victorious in battle!

 

Selah!

The Psalm Project represents my desire for a deeper understanding of the Word of YAHUAH. It is not a mechanical translation, a one-word-for-word exchange from Hebrew to English. We have those. This is a lyrical adaptation of the many possibilities hidden in the Hebrew, arranged with consideration for the poetic and musical intent of the original writer. I pray you are as enriched in the reading as I was in the transcribing.
