The Message

Psalm 15

A David Psalm

1God, who gets invited
    to dinner at your place?
How do we get on your guest list?

“Walk straight,
    act right,
        tell the truth.

3-4 “Don’t hurt your friend,
    don’t blame your neighbor;
        despise the despicable.

“Keep your word even when it costs you,
    make an honest living,
        never take a bribe.

“You’ll never get
blacklisted
if you live like this.”

Obu wɔn a Onyankopɔn apa wɔn no animtiaa, na odi wɔn a wotie Awurade no ni. Ɔkwan biara so, odi ne bɔhyɛ so. Ɔma bosea a, onnye mfantom na wontumi nhyɛ n’afonom sɛ onni adansekurum. Nea ɔyɛ eyinom no tim hɔ daa.
