Psalm 15

The character of those who may dwell in the Lord

[Psa 15:1-5 NASB] 1 A Psalm of David.

O LORD, who may abide in Your tent?

Who may dwell on Your holy hill?

2 He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, And speaks truth in his heart.

3 He does not slander with his tongue,

Nor does evil to his neighbor,

Nor takes up a reproach against his friend;

4 In whose eyes a reprobate is despised, But who honors those who fear the LORD;

He swears to his own hurt and does not change;

5 He does not put out his money at interest,

Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things will never be shaken.


v1 - tent and holy hill are Hebrew idioms meaning the place of God's presence.

reproach = something sharp or cutting

reprobate = a worthless person
