Discussion for Psalms 24

  • Hoe Of Glory
    Standing in God's holy place, one needs:- Clean Hands, Pure Heart, Honesty, Rejecting False Idols and Wealth. Amen
  • 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
