1 Lord, who may dwell in your tabernacle?
Who may rest upon your holy hill?
2 Whoever leads an uncorrupt life
and does the thing that is right;
3 Who speaks the truth from the heart
and bears no deceit on the tongue;
4 Who does no evil to a friend
and pours no scorn on a neighbour;
5 In whose sight the wicked are not esteemed,
but who honours those who fear the Lord.
6 Whoever has sworn to a neighbour
and never goes back on that word;
7 Who does not lend money in hope of gain,
nor takes a bribe against the innocent;
8 Whoever does these things
shall never fall.
