Psalm Fifteen...

O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent?
Who shall dwell on your holy hill?

He who walks blamelessly and does what is right
and speaks truth in his heart;
who does not slander with his tongue
and does no evil to his neighbor,
nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
in whose eyes a vile person is despised,
but who honors those who fear the Lord;
who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
who does not put out his money at interest
and does not take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be moved.

word: “who”
phrase: “He who does these things shall never be moved.”
call: [verses 2-5] When reading these verses the first thing that came to mind for me was that the words of this psalm describe what a Christian should daily strive to be…someone who does what is right, someone who speaks truth, someone who does no evil to his neighbor, someone who honors others who believe, someone who does not take interest in things of this world…
