Psalm 15

Psalm 15

A psalm of David.

Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent?
    Who may live on your holy mountain?

The one whose way of life is blameless,
    who does what is righteous,
    who speaks the truth from their heart;
whose tongue utters no slander,
    who does no wrong to a neighbour,
    and casts no slur on others;
who despises a vile person
    but honours those who fear the Lord;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
    and does not change their mind;
who lends money to the poor without interest;
    who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

Whoever does these things
    will never be shaken.

Psalm 15

Psalm 15

A psalm of David.

Lord, who can live in your sacred tent?
    Who can stay on your holy mountain?

Anyone who lives without blame
    and does what is right.
They speak the truth from their heart.
    They don’t tell lies about other people.
They don’t do wrong to their neighbors.
    They don’t say anything bad about them.
They hate evil people.
    But they honor those who have respect for the Lord.
They keep their promises even when it hurts.
    They do not change their mind.
They lend their money to poor people without charging interest.
    They don’t accept money to harm those who aren’t guilty.

Anyone who lives like that
    will always be secure.
