Psalm 15

A Description of the Godly

A Davidic psalm.

Lord, who can dwell in Your tent?(A)
Who can live on Your holy mountain?(B)

The one who lives honestly, practices righteousness,
and acknowledges the truth in his heart(C)
who does not slander with his tongue,(D)
who does not harm his friend
or discredit his neighbor,(E)
who despises the one rejected by the Lord[a]
but honors those who fear the Lord,(F)
who keeps his word whatever the cost,(G)
who does not lend his money at interest(H)
or take a bribe against the innocent(I)
the one who does these things will never be moved.(J)
