In the Middle Ages, this psalm was performed weekly, according to the Rule of St. Benedict, established in 530AD. As St. Benedict of Nursia attributed Psalm 24 to be sung or recited in the celebration of matins dimanche[6][7]

The Psalm 24 is today used in the Liturgy of the Hours. It is found particularly in the Lauds of Tuesday of the first semaine[8] and the Office of Sunday readings of the fourth week.
