2The one who lives honestly, practices righteousness,
and acknowledges the truth in his heart # Ps 24:3-5; Is 33:14-16
3who does not slander with his tongue, # Pr 10:18
who does not harm his friend
or discredit his neighbor, # Pr 3:29

but honors those who fear the Lord, # Gn 14:17-24; Ps 119:63
who keeps his word whatever the cost, # Lv 5:4; Dt 23:21-23
5who does not lend his money at interest # Lv 25:35-38; Dt 33:19
or take a bribe against the innocent # Ex 23:18; Dt 16:19
the one who does these things will never be moved. # Ps 16:8; 112:6
