    PSALM 15

    Ps 15:1-5. Those who are fit for communion with God may be known by a conformity to His law, which is illustrated in various important particulars.

    1. abide--or, "sojourn" (compare Ps 5:4), where it means under God's protection here, as (Ps 23:6, 27:4, 6) communion.
    - tabernacle--seat of the ark (2Sa 6:17), the symbol of God's presence.
    - holy hill--(Compare Ps 2:6).

    2. walketh--(Compare Ps 1:1).
    - uprightly--in a complete manner, as to all parts of conduct (Ge 17:1), not as to degree.
    - worketh--or, "does."
    - righteousness--what is right.
    - in his heart--sincerely (Pr 23:7).

    3. He neither slanders nor spreads slander.

    4. Love and hate are regulated by a regard to God.
    - sweareth . . . hurt--or what so results (compare Le 5:4).

    5. (Compare Le 25:37; De 23:19, 20).
    - usury is derived from a verb meaning "to bite." All gains made by the wrongful loss of others are forbidden.
    - taketh reward, &c.--The innocent would not otherwise be condemned (compare Ex 23:8; De 16:19). Bribery of all sorts is denounced.
    - doeth these, &c.--Such persons admitted to God's presence and favor shall never be moved (Ps 10:6; 13:5).
