Who Shall Dwell on Your Holy Hill?
LORD, a who may abide in Your tabernacle?
Who may dwell in Your holy hill?
He who walks uprightly,
And works righteousness,
And speaks the b truth in his heart;
He who c does not backbite with his tongue,
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
d Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend;
e In whose eyes a vile person is despised,
But he honors those who fear the LORD;
He who f swears to his own hurt and does not change;
He who does not put out his money at usury,
Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things g shall never be moved.

Psalms 24:3 - 5
Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place?
These are the things you shall do: Speak each man the truth to his neighbor; Give judgment in your gates for truth, justice, and peace.
Therefore, putting away lying, "Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor," for we are members of one another.
Leviticus 19:16 - 18
You shall not go about as a talebearer among your people; nor shall you take a stand against the life of your neighbor: I am the LORD.
You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.
And all the king's servants who were within the king's gate bowed and paid homage to Haman, for so the king had commanded concerning him. But Mordecai would not bow or pay homage.
Or if a person swears, speaking thoughtlessly with his lips to do evil or to do good, whatever it is that a man may pronounce by an oath, and he is unaware of it - when he realizes it, then he shall be guilty in any of these matters.
2 Peter 1:10
Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble.
