1 O Lord within thy Tabernacle,
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 speakes no deceit;
3 Nor to his neighbour doth none ill,
in body, goods, or name:
Nor willingly doth move false tales,
which might empaire the same.
4 That in his heart regardeth not
malicious wicked men:
But those that love and feare the Lord,
he maketh much of them:
5 His oath and all his promises
that keepeth faithfully;
Although he make his covenant so
that he doth lose thereby.
6 That putteth not to usury
his money and his coyne:
Ne for to hurt the innocent,
doth bribe or else, purloyne,
7 Who so doth these things as you see,
that here is to be done:
Shall never perish in this world,
nor in the world to come.
