Wesley's Notes for Psalms 24:3


24:3 The hill - Zion or Moriah, the place of God's sanctuary and special presence. Having asserted God's dominion over all mankind, he now proposes an important question, by whom God will be served, and his blessing enjoyed? Stand - To minister before him. Standing is the posture of ministers or servants. Who shall serve God, with God's acceptation. Holy place - In the place which he hath sanctified for his service.

    ONLY Lord Jesus fits the description of v.4. Jeremiah23:6THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS."The blessing" is singular unto him who "knew no sin".Our blessing is to know Jesus as our Lord and Savior.2Cor.2:21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.

    In Psalm 24, we are reminded of the attributes that can make us see God- "Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully."
