King David Sings Of YAH's Magnificence
1 The Kingdom (Dominion) Of Heaven * ๐Ÿ˜‡, all [the] earth (including all who live in it) [belong to] YHVH.
See song: YAH rules The Earth.
2 Origins YAH founds the [land so strongly that its peaks rise to tower] over the seas, ๐Ÿ˜‡. [He] builds [mountains higher than any] flood [can touch].
YAH is owner of the earth and all in it, because YAH created it all. Man's use-privileges are contingent on man's obedience to YAH's Word. Seas: see ps136:6, 2pe3:5. Some interpretations posit this verse as referring to underground aquifers.
3 Separation (Holiness) Who can ascend onto YHVH's [heavenly] mountain, ๐Ÿ˜‡? Who can stand in YAH's holy dwelling?
4 Separation (Holiness) *[Only beings] with clean hands, and pure heart[s], [saints] who never lift up their soul[s] to vanity, and never swear deceitfully, [can live with YAH], ๐Ÿ˜‡.
It's common practice to sign statements โ€˜under penalty of perjuryโ€™ when you've never read them and don't understand them. But it's swearing deceitfully.
5 Moral Purity / Childlikeness [Pure beings] receive blessing[s] from YHVH โ€” vindication from the Elohim who saves them.
6 Separation (Holiness) The [true] descendants of Jacob are the holy people who seek [YAH's] face.
A difficult verse to translate. Jesus and other prophets confirm that the true Israelites are identified by holiness, not genetics.
A Cool Hebrew Dance, Lifting Heads & Hands
7 Praise Lift up your head[s], you [spirit] gates. Raise up portals to eternity, so the glorious King can come in [to you].
Probably a set of dance motions in which the dancers lift up their heads, then throw their hands into the sky in thanks, inviting YAH to come into their hearts. As normally quoted, this verse is religious gibberish. The Good News Translation starts to hint toward a good translation but it drops words: Fling wide the gates, open the ancient doors, and the great king will come in.
8 Yah's Protection *Who [is the] King of glory, ๐Ÿ˜‡? YHVH strong and mighty! YHVH, master of [spiritual] battle!
9 Praise Lift up your heads, you [spirit] gates! Lift up [your hands as] portals to eternity, ๐Ÿ˜‡, so the King of glory will come in [to you].
Again, probably dance motions.
10 The Kingdom (Dominion) Of Heaven Who [is the] King of glory, ๐Ÿ˜‡?! YHVH, [lord of angel] armies! [He's the] glorious Emperor [over the universe]! Selah {Dramatic-Break}.
