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.

    PSALM 24:1 the earth is THE LORDS and the fulness thereof the world and they that dwell therein --24:2-- for HE hath founded it upon the seas and established it upon the floods --24:3-- who shall ascend into the hill of THE LORD or who shall stand in HIS holy place --24:4-- he that hath clean hands and a --PURE HEART-- who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity nor sworn deceitfully
  • Stevie
    Clean hands and a pure heart; Him shall see the God of glory. But those whose mouths spew deceit and whose hearts are corrupted by vanity, they will be left bereft of any good thing from God. They will writhe in agony of their own making, and bewilderment and bottomless sorrow, of their own doing. They have no excuse and will wither to chaff and be blown away. But the righteous hear the word
  • Evelyn
