Drive-by Scripture, Psalm 24

The earth belongs to the LORD. Everything in it is his own. The world belongs to the LORD. Everybody in it is his own. The LORD built it on the seas. He founded it on the waters. Who can go up the hill of the LORD? Who can stand in his holy place? The person that has clean hands and a pure heart. The person that does not worship idols. The person that does not believe in lies. The LORD will do good things to those people. God will save them. He will say that they are right. They are the people that are looking for God. They want to see the face of (the God) of Jacob.

sunset01Decided to give this one to you in very simple and direct, basic English (you want King James, which is pretty in its own right, go here). I didn’t pick it out for any deep reason. My wife started a nightime ritual with Little Girl Blue recently where they say prayers, do a Bible reading, and then watch all or part of some kiddie flick and cuddle until it’s time for me to put the little darling to bed. Lately, Mrs. Blue has been doing the reading from Psalms, and Little Girl Blue picks it. For some interesting reason, she’s been picking psalms numbered in the 20s for a week straight now.

Anyway, it was Psalm 24 tonight (I did the reading and all the other stuff because the wife is really freaking sick). Just thought I’d share before I go to bed. (Or, more likely, stay up until the wee hours watching a movie on my PC.)


Deacon Blue is the blogging persona of editor and writer Jeffrey Bouley. The opinions of Jeff himself on this blog, and those expressed as Deacon Blue, in NO WAY should be construed as the opinions of anyone with whom he has worked, currently works, or will work with in the future. They are personal opinions and views, and are sometimes, frankly, expressed in more outrageous terms than I truly feel most days.
