1 LORD, who are they that may dwell
within the courts of your house?
And by what lives do they show
they dwell on your holy hill?
2 They lead an incorrupt life
and do the thing that is right.
They speak the truth from their heart
and use not their tongue for harm.
3 They do no wrong to their friends
and will not slander their name.
They scorn the one who is false
but love those who fear the LORD.
4 They stand by what they have vowed,
although it be to their hurt.
They do not sin with their wealth
and will not be swayed with bribes.
5 Now these are they who may dwell
within the courts of the LORD.
Their lives shall never be moved;
they stand in their God, secure.
