57. Conditions of Approach to God

1 The earth and the fullness with which it is stored,
The world and its dwellers belong to the Lord;
For He on the seas its foundations has laid,
And firm on the waters its pillars has stayed,
And firm on the waters its pillars has stayed.

2 What man shall the hill of Jehovah ascend,
And who in the place of His presence attend?
The man of pure heart, and of hands without stain,
Who swears not to falsehood nor loves what is vain,
Who swears not to falsehood nor loves what is vain.

3 That man ever blest of Jehovah shall live.
The God of salvation shall righteousness give;
For this is the people, yea, this is the race,
The Israel true that are seeking His face,
The Israel true that are seeking His face.
