Sometimes it seems so complicated to be a godly person. As humans we have a way of adding steps, rules, criteria, checkboxes to things in order to exert some sense of control over them… I think faith is no different– we all want a sense that we’re “doing it right.” And yet, faith IS different, isn’t it.
But this Psalm makes it pretty simple… do the things in this list, and you’ll never be “moved”– some translations have it “shaken,” and the idea is that you’ll be able to withstand whatever life hurls at you.
Do what’s right, speak the truth from the heart, don’t slander, don’t do evil, don’t speak badly of your neighbours, keep your promises– do these things and you’ll be rock-steady.
A Psalm of David.
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.
Those who do these things shall never be moved.
