Psalm 15

Description of a Citizen of Zion.

A Psalm of David.

1O Lord, who may [a]abide in Your tent?
Who may dwell on Your holy hill?
He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness,
And speaks truth in his heart.
He does not slander [b]with his tongue,
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
Nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
In [c]whose eyes a reprobate is despised,
But [d]who honors those who fear the Lord;
He swears to his own hurt and does not change;
He does not put out his money [e]at interest,
Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things will never be shaken.

Salme 15

De gode kan nærme sig Gud

1En sang af David.

Herre, hvem kan få adgang til din helligdom?
    Hvem har lov at opholde sig hos dig på det hellige bjerg?

De, som har et godt ry
    og altid handler ret.
De, som taler sandhed af et oprigtigt hjerte
    og nægter at bagtale andre.
De, som ikke foruretter deres næste
    eller taler ondt om andre.
De, som tager afstand fra de gudløse,
    men ærer dem, der adlyder Herren.
De, som holder deres løfter,
    selv om det koster dem dyrt.
De, som ikke kræver urimelige renter,
    når de låner penge ud.
De, som nægter at tage imod bestikkelse
    for at afgive falsk vidneudsagn.
De, som lever ret,
    har intet at frygte.
