A psalm of David.
Who may live on your holy hill? 3
does what is right,
and speaks honestly. 5
or do harm to others, 8
or insult his neighbor. 9
2 tn Heb “Who may live as a resident alien in your tent?”
4 tn Heb “one who walks blamelessly.”
5 tn Heb “one who speaks truth in his heart”; or “one who speaks truth [that is] in his heart.” This apparently refers to formulating a truthful statement in one’s mind and then honestly revealing that statement in one’s speech.
6 sn Hebrew literature often assumes and reflects the male-oriented perspective of ancient Israelite society. The principle of the psalm is certainly applicable to all people, regardless of their gender or age.
8 tn Or “his fellow.”
9 tn Heb “and he does not lift up an insult against one who is near to him.”
