Yahweh is king of the earth (Ps 24:1-24:2)

A psalm of David

The earth is Yahweh’s.

All that is in it is Yahweh’s.

The world and those who live in it is Yahweh’s.

He has founded it on the seas.

He has established it on the rivers.”

Psalm 24 is another short psalm of David about the entrance into the sanctuary. Everything on earth belongs to Yahweh. All that is on earth belongs to Yahweh. All who live on earth belong to Yahweh. Yahweh established this earth out of the seas and the rivers. This goes back to the idea of the vast water ways of the world before earth land came to be.
