Psalms 15:1-5

  • Who may be a guest in Jehovah’s tent?

    • He speaks the truth in his heart (2)

    • He does not slander (3)

    • He keeps promises even when it hurts (4)

A melody of David. 15  O Jehovah, who may be a guest in your tent? Who may reside in your holy mountain?+   The one who is walking faultlessly,*+Practicing what is right+And speaking the truth in his heart.+   He does not slander with his tongue,+He does nothing bad to his neighbor,+And he does not defame* his friends.+   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.+   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.*+


Or “with integrity.”
Or “shame.”
Lit., “oath.”
Or “will never stagger (totter).”
