Psalm 15 T.S.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 Within thy tabernacle, Lord, who shall inhabit still ? Or whom wilt thou receive to dwell in thy most holy hill?
2 The man whose life is uncorrupt, whose works are just and straight, Whose heart doth think the very truth, and tongue speaks no deceit;
3 That to his neighbor doth no ill, in body, goods, or name; Nor willingly doth slanders raise, which might impair the same:
4 That in his heart regardeth not malicious wicked men; But those that love and fear the Lord, he maketh much of them:
5 His oath and all his promises that keepeth faithfully; Although he make his cov'nant so that he doth lose thereby:
6 That putteth not to usury his money and his coin; Nor for to hurt the innocent doth bribe, nor yet purloin.
7 Whoso doth these things faithfully, and turneth not therefrom, Shall never perish in this world, nor that which is to come.
