1 LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? 2 He who walks uprightly, And works righteousness, And speaks the truth in his heart; 3 He who does not backbite with his tongue, Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend; 4 In whose eyes a vile person is despised, But he honors those who fear the LORD; He who swears to his own hurt and does not change; 5 He who does not put out his money at usury, Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved. This is a Psalm of David that serves as a reminder of who can be in the presence of the Lord: The righteous, the truthful, the prudent in speech, the neighborly, the one who despises evil and the vile, the one who will tell the truth even if it hurts them or their plans, the one who doesn’t charge interest when loaning money, and the one who refuses to take a bribe.
We see the opposite of these requirements in the world system every day. Let us be separated from the world and walk in the presence of God.
