A Psalm of David.
O Lord, u who shall sojourn in your v tent?
Who shall dwell on your w holy hill?
He who x walks blamelessly and y does what is right
and z speaks truth in his heart;
who a does not slander with his tongue
and does no evil to his neighbor,
nor b takes up a reproach against his friend;
c in whose eyes a vile person is despised,
but who honors those who fear the Lord;
who d swears to his own hurt and does not change;
who e does not put out his money at interest
and f does not take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be g moved.
