PSALM XV. Chapter Overview

The scope of this short, but excellent psalm, is to shew us the way to heaven. Here is a question proposed, verse 1.
The answer to it, verse 2-5.
A psalm of David.

Verse 1
Who - Who shall so dwell in thy church here, as to dwell with thee for ever in heaven?

Verse 2
Uprightly - Loving, and serving God, and loving his neighbour not in word only, but in truth; and this constantly. Worketh - Makes it his business to do justly, to give to every one his due, first to God, and then to men. Speaketh - His words and professions to God and men, agree with the thoughts and purposes of his heart.

Verse 3
He - He that doth not speak evil of his neighbour. Neighbour - That is, any man. Nor taketh - Into his mouth, doth not raise it, neither spread or propagate it; or believe it without sufficient reason.

Verse 4
Vile - An ungodly man. Honoureth - He highly esteems and loves them, though they be mean as to their worldly condition, and though they may differ from him in some opinions or practices of lesser moment. Sweareth - A promissory oath. Hurt - To his own damage. As if a man solemnly swear, that he will sell him such an estate at a price below the full worth; or that, he will give a poor man such a sum of money, which afterwards he finds inconvenient to him. Changeth not - His purpose, but continues firm and resolved to perform his promise.

Verse 5
To usury - In such a manner as is contrary to God's law: of which see otherwise, Exodus 22:25; Leviticus 25:36,37, &c. Reward - Or, a bribe for him who hath a bad cause. Moved - He shall abide with God here, and when he dies be for ever with the Lord.
