A Description of Those Who May Dwell with Yahweh

A psalm of David.[a]

15 O Yahweh, who may reside in your tent?
Who may dwell on your holy mountain?
He who walks blamelessly and does what is right.
He who speaks honestly in his heart.
He does not slander with his tongue.
He does not harm his friend,
nor bring up[b] a disgrace against his neighbor.
In his eyes a rejected one is contemptible,
but he honors those who respect Yahweh.
He takes an oath to his own injury and does not retract it.
He does not lend his money at interest,
and does not take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things
will never be shaken.


  1. Psalm 15:1 The Hebrew Bible counts the superscription as the first verse of the psalm
  2. Psalm 15:3 Literally “lift up”
