א  לְדָוִד מִזְמוֹר לַיהֹוָה הָאָרֶץ וּמְלוֹאָהּ תֵּבֵל וְיֹשְׁבֵי בָהּ׃

24:1   The earth is Hashem’s and all that it holds

As King David says in this verse, “The earth is Hashem’s and all that it holds.” 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, have a vision for its destiny and decide with whom to share it. Such is Hashem’s relationship with the world. He built it with a vision and shared it with mankind. As is stated over and over in the Tanakh, He chose to give the Land of Israel to the Jewish people.2 comments

2  For He founded it upon the ocean, set it on the nether-streams.

ב  כִּי־הוּא עַל־יַמִּים יְסָדָהּ וְעַל־נְהָרוֹת יְכוֹנְנֶהָ׃

3  Who may ascend the mountain of Hashem? Who may stand in His holy place?—

ג  מִי־יַעֲלֶה בְהַר־יְהֹוָה וּמִי־יָקוּם בִּמְקוֹם קָדְשׁוֹ׃

4  He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not taken a false oath by My life or sworn deceitfully.

ד  נְקִי כַפַּיִם וּבַר־לֵבָב אֲשֶׁר לֹא־נָשָׂא לַשָּׁוְא נַפְשִׁי וְלֹא נִשְׁבַּע לְמִרְמָה׃

5  He shall carry away a blessing from Hashem, a just reward from Hashem, his deliverer.

ה  יִשָּׂא בְרָכָה מֵאֵת יְהֹוָה וּצְדָקָה מֵאֱלֹהֵי יִשְׁעוֹ׃

6  Such is the circle of those who turn to Him, Yaakov, who seek Your presence. Selah.

ו  זֶה דּוֹר דרשו [דֹּרְשָׁיו] מְבַקְשֵׁי פָנֶיךָ יַעֲקֹב סֶלָה׃

7  O gates, lift up your heads! Up high, you everlasting doors, so 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, mighty and valiant, Hashem, valiant in battle.

ח  מִי זֶה מֶלֶךְ הַכָּבוֹד יְהֹוָה עִזּוּז וְגִבּוֹר יְהֹוָה גִּבּוֹר מִלְחָמָה׃

9  O gates, lift up your heads! Lift them up, you everlasting doors, so the King of glory may come in!

ט  שְׂאוּ שְׁעָרִים רָאשֵׁיכֶם וּשְׂאוּ פִּתְחֵי עוֹלָם וְיָבֹא מֶלֶךְ הַכָּבוֹד׃

10  Who is the King of glory?— the lord of hosts, He is the King of glory! Selah.

י  מִי הוּא זֶה מֶלֶךְ הַכָּבוֹד יְהֹוָה צְבָאוֹת הוּא מֶלֶךְ הַכָּבוֹד סֶלָה׃
