David describes a citizen of Zion.

A Psalm by David.

15:1 Yahweh, who shall dwell in your sanctuary?
Who shall live on your holy hill?

15:2 He who walks blamelessly does what is right,
and speaks truth in his heart;

15:3 He who doesn’t slander with his tongue,
nor does evil to his friend,
nor casts slurs against his fellow man;

15:4 In whose eyes a vile man is despised,
but who honors those who fear Yahweh;
he who keeps an oath even when it hurts, and doesn’t change;

15:5 he who doesn’t lend out his money for usury,
nor take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be shaken.
