  may stand in his holy place? 4 He who
  has clean hands and a pure heart, who
  does not lift up his soul to an idol or
  swear by what is false. 5 He will receive
  blessing from the LORD and vindication
  from God his Savior.

  seek him, who seek your face, O God of

  gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors,
  that the King of glory may come in. 8

  strong and mighty. the LORD mighty in
  battle. 9 Lift up your heads, O you
