Psalm 15

Who May Dwell in Your Sanctuary?

Heading

A psalm by David.

The Question: Who May Dwell in Your Sanctuary?

Lord, who may be a guest in your tent?
Who may dwell on your holy mountain?

The Answer: The One Who Does What Is Righteous

One who walks with integrity,
who does what is righteous,
and who speaks the truth in his heart.
He has no slander on his tongue.
He does not harm his friend,
and he does not defame his neighbor.
He despises everyone whom God rejects,
but he honors those who fear the Lord.
When he promises something,
    he does not break his word
    even though it costs him a lot.
He does not lend his money to get interest,[a]
and he does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
One who does these things will never be toppled.
