Psalms 15
A song of David.
1Lord, who can live in your Holy Tent#15:1 Holy Tent The special tent where the people of Israel worshiped God. Here, it is probably the Temple on the “holy mountain” (see “Zion” in the Word List) in Jerusalem.?
Who can live on your holy mountain?
2Only those who live pure lives, do what is right,
and speak the truth from their hearts.
3Such people don’t say bad things about others.
They don’t do things to hurt their neighbors.
They don’t tell shameful things about those close to them.
4They hate those who fail to please God
and honor those who respect the Lord.
If they make a promise to their neighbor,
they do what they promised.#15:4 If they … promised Or “They promised not to do bad things, and they do not do bad things.”
5If they loan money to someone,
they do not charge them interest.
And they refuse to testify against an innocent person,
even if someone offers them money to do it.
Whoever lives like this will always stand strong.
