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.

    Phyllis,the lifting is not conditional.He that hath the son hath life.Otherwise,we are saved by our works.Knowing where we are going, we want to be found clean.Verses 4 5 is the Lord Jesus only. Jeremiah 23:5 6
  • BSP
    Verses 1 and 2 shows that God solidly fixed the whole planet and everything belongs to Him. When we have questions and problems that involve the whole planet, it only makes sense that we would listen to Jehovah God as the Creator of all things.
