Listen to this chapter in Hebrew:

1  A Psalm of David. The earth is Hashem’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

l’-da-VID miz-MOR la-do-NAI ha-A-retz um-lo-AH tay-VAYL v’-yo-sh’-VAY vah

א  לְדָוִד מִזְמוֹר לַיהוָה הָאָרֶץ וּמְלוֹאָהּ תֵּבֵל וְיֹשְׁבֵי בָהּ.

24:1   The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof

As King David says in this verse, “The earth is the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof.” Just as the creator of a piece of art is the owner of his masterpiece, God, as creator, is the owner of the entire world. Only a creator can see the full potential of his creation, has a vision for its destiny and decides with whom to share it. Such is God’s relationship with the world. He built it with a vision and shared it with mankind. And as is mentioned over and over in the Bible, He chose to share the Land of Israel with the Jewish people.

2  For He hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

ב  כִּי הוּא עַל יַמִּים יְסָדָהּ וְעַל נְהָרוֹת יְכוֹנְנֶהָ.

3  Who shall ascend into the mountain of Hashem? and who shall stand in His holy place?

ג  מִי יַעֲלֶה בְהַר יְהוָה וּמִי יָקוּם בִּמְקוֹם קָדְשׁוֹ.

4  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not taken My name in vain, and hath not sworn deceitfully.

ד  נְקִי כַפַּיִםוּבַר לֵבָב אֲשֶׁר לֹא נָשָׂא לַשָּׁוְא נַפְשִׁי וְלֹא נִשְׁבַּע לְמִרְמָה.

5  He shall receive a blessing from Hashem, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

ה  יִשָּׂא בְרָכָה מֵאֵת יְהוָה וּצְדָקָה מֵאֱלֹהֵי יִשְׁעוֹ.

6  Such is the generation of them that seek after Him, that seek Thy face, even Jacob. Selah

ו  זֶה דּוֹר דֹּרְשָׁו מְבַקְשֵׁי פָנֶיךָ יַעֲקֹב סֶלָה.

7  Lift up your heads, O ye gates, and be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors; that the King of glory may come in.

ז  שְׂאוּ שְׁעָרִים רָאשֵׁיכֶם וְהִנָּשְׂאוּ פִּתְחֵי עוֹלָם וְיָבוֹא מֶלֶךְ הַכָּבוֹד.

8  ‘Who is the King of glory?’ ‘Hashem strong and mighty, Hashem mighty in battle.’

ח  מִי זֶה מֶלֶךְ הַכָּבוֹד יְהוָה עִזּוּז וְגִבּוֹר יְהוָה גִּבּוֹר מִלְחָמָה.

9  Lift up your heads, O ye gates, yea, lift them up, ye everlasting doors; that the King of glory may come in.

ט  שְׂאוּ שְׁעָרִים רָאשֵׁיכֶם וּשְׂאוּ פִּתְחֵי עוֹלָם וְיָבֹא מֶלֶךְ הַכָּבוֹד.

10  ‘Who then is the King of glory?’ ‘Hashem of hosts; He is the King of glory.’ Selah

י  מִי הוּא זֶה מֶלֶךְ הַכָּבוֹד יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת הוּא מֶלֶךְ הַכָּבוֹד סֶלָה.
