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
