24:7, 8 I like to think that the procession has been singing the words of verses 1–6 as they cross the Valley of the Kidron.

And the King of glory shall come in.” A sentry on the wall of the city calls back in loud, impressive tones, “Who is this King of glory?” The answer comes back in clear, stentorian words, “The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.”
