Psalm 24: 9 to 25:1   then Is. 60: 1-5 and 11

9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.

Unto thee, O Jehovah, do I lift up my soul.

Arise, shine, for your light has come,

and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.

2  For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,

and thick darkness the peoples;

but the Lord will arise upon you,

and his glory will be seen upon you.

3  And nations shall come to your light,

and kings to the brightness of your rising.

4  Lift up your eyes all around, and see;

they all gather together, they come to you;

your sons shall come from afar,

and your daughters shall be carried on the hip.

Your daughters will be carried on your hips

5  Then you shall see and be radiant;

your heart shall thrill and exult,

11 Your gates shall be open continually;

day and night they shall not be shut,

that people may bring to you the wealth of the nations,

with their kings led in procession.

Who are the Lord’s gates?  Who are his everlasting doors?  Jesus said that he is the gate and he is the door, and we are to be like him.
