Psalm 15
Contemporary English Version

(A psalm by David.)

Who May Worship the Lord?

1Who may stay in God's temple

or live on the holy mountain

of the Lord?

2Only those who obey God

and do as they should.

They speak the truth

3and don't spread gossip;

they treat others fairly

and don't say cruel things.

4They hate worthless people,

but show respect for all

who worship the Lord.

And they keep their promises,

no matter what the cost.

5They lend their money

without charging interest,

and they don't take bribes

to hurt the innocent.

Those who do these things

will always stand firm.
