The gate to the Temple (Ps 118:19-118:20)

“Open to me the gates of righteousness!

Thus I may enter through them.

I will give thanks to Yahweh.

This is the gate of Yahweh.

The righteous shall enter through it.”

Now the psalmist arrived at the gates to the Temple. Would they be open for him? He wanted to give thanks to Yahweh. The gate to Yahweh’s Temple would open to him if he was one of the righteous ones. The gate of the Temple would open for those who were righteous. Otherwise, it might be closed.
