Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 24:1-10. Psalm 24 is a Psalm of David. David declares the earth and those who dwell in it is the LORD’S. God created the earth and every living creature that dwells on the earth.
David asks, “Who will ascend to the hill of the LORD and stand in His holy place?” David says it will be He who has clean hands and a pure heart and doesn’t speak vainly or lie. He will receive the blessing from the LORD and righteousness from the God of His salvation. Could David be talking about Jesus? He ascended to heaven and He will return one day and stand on the holy hill of the LORD.
David cries out, “Lift up your heads and the King of glory will come in!” David asks several times who this King of glory is. Notice the replies. The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle, the LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory! Do you know this LORD?
Daily Bible Reading:
1 [[A Psalm of David.]] The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.
7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
Things to think about:
- What does David declare in verse one?
- Who does David say will stand on the holy hill of the LORD?

About the book:
The Book of Psalms: Part 1 Chapters 1-30 by Deborah H. Bateman is part of the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book will contain approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.
Psalm 119 will not be included in The Book of Psalms since Deborah has already published a book about it called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet. The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from the enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
The Book of Psalms Part 1 Chapters 1-30 contains thirty-one Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or groups.
