Psalm 15
Good News Translation

What God Requires+

1Lord, who may enter your Temple?

Who may worship on Zion, your sacred hill?+

2Those who obey God in everything

and always do what is right,

whose words are true and sincere,

3and who do not slander others.

They do no wrong to their friends

nor spread rumors about their neighbors.

4They despise those whom God rejects,

but honor those who obey the Lord.

They always do what they promise,

no matter how much it may cost.

5They make loans without charging interest

and cannot be bribed to testify against the innocent.

Whoever does these things will always be secure.


HEBREW TITLE: A psalm by David.
15.1: sacred hill: See 2.6.
