Words for the wealthy and politicians who serve them to live by


Psalm 15

A psalm of David.


1                    LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary?  Who may live on your holy hill?

2                    He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart

3                    and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman,

4                    who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the LORD, who keeps his oath even when it hurts,

5                    who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent.  He who does these things will never be shaken.
