The Psalms

Psalm 15

David describes a citizen of Zion, 1-5.

1 [A Psalm of David.] LORD, who shall abide in your tabernacle? Who shall dwell on your holy hill?

2 He who walks uprightly, works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart;

3 He who does not backbite with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor;

4 In whose eyes a vile person is despised, but he honors those who fear the LORD; he who swears to his own hurt and does not change;

5 He who does not put out his money to usury, nor takes reward against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved.


Matthew Henry Commentary - Psalms, Chapter 15
