Psalms 24:10

Context

24:10 Who is this majestic king?

The Lord who commands armies! 5 

He is the majestic king! (Selah)

1 tn Heb “lift up your heads.” The gates of the Lord’s dwelling place are here personified. The idiom “lift up the head” often means “be confident, bold” (see Judg 8:28; Job 10:15; Ps 83:2; Zech 1:21).

2 tn Heb “lift yourselves up.”

3 tn Or “king of glory.”

4 tn Following the imperatives of the preceding lines, the prefixed verbal form with vav (ו) conjunctive indicates purpose or result.

5 tn Traditionally, “the Lord of hosts,” a title which here pictures the Lord as a mighty warrior-king who leads armies into battle.
