A melody of David. 15  O Jehovah, who may be a guest in your tent? Who may reside in your holy mountain?+ 2   The one who is walking faultlessly,*+ Practicing what is right+ And speaking the truth in his heart.+ 3   He does not slander with his tongue,+ He does nothing bad to his neighbor,+ And he does not defame* his friends.+ 4   He rejects anyone who is contemptible,+ But he honors those fearing Jehovah. He does not go back on his promise,* even when it is bad for him.+ 5   He does not lend his money on interest,+ And he does not accept a bribe against the innocent.+ Whoever does these things will never be shaken.*+
