Psalm 15 is a beautiful Psalm of David which teaches the qualities of a Righteous Man. We are born in this world to live a righteous life, giving thanks and praise to the Lord. We are here to spread love, joy and peace. During our short sojourn on earth, we should spend each moment loving and helping others. In doing so, we are living out God’s will for us and when we come to the end of our earthly journey, we shall inherit the greatest of all gifts from God – Heaven.
Psalm 15 describes the Righteous Man who shall abide in God’ Sanctuary. These verses guide us and teach us on how we should live our lives so that we can dwell in our Heavenly Father’s Kingdom. As we read this Psalm, let us look into ourselves and ask God for forgiveness for the many times we have failed the Lord.
“1. O Lord, who may abide in your tent?
Who may dwell on your holy hill?
2. Those who walk blamelessly, and do what is right,
and speak the truth from their heart;
3. who do not slander with their tongue,
and do no evil to their friends,
nor take up a reproach against their neighbours;
4. in whose eyes the wicked are despised,
but who honour those who fear the Lord;
who stand by their oath even to their hurt;
5. who do not lend money at interest,
and do not take a bribe against the innocent.
6. Those who do these things shall never be moved.”
