Description of a Citizen of Zion

[1]  JEHOVAH, who shall sojourn in thy tabernacle? 1
Who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
[2]  He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness,
And speaketh truth in his heart;
[3]  He 2 that slandereth not with his tongue,
Nor doeth evil to his friend,
Nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbor;
[4]  In whose 3 eyes a reprobate is despised,
But who 4 honoreth them that fear Jehovah;
He 5 that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not;
[5]  He 6 that putteth not out his money to interest,
Nor taketh reward against the innocent.
He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
