Psalm 15

Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill?

He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman, who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the Lord, who keeps his oath even when it hurts, who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things will never be shaken.

A Thought

Want to abide with God? Follow these simple commands: ┬áDo what is right; Speak the truth; Do no wrong to your neighbor; Do not slander or attempt to damage anyone’s reputation; Despise the wicked and honor the godly; Keep your promises; When you lend money do not charge interest; And do not accept a bribe. Follow these commands and you will have a firm foundation on life.
