Original text and translations
Domine, quis habitabit in tabernaculo tuo:
aut quis requiescat in monte sancto tuo?
Qui ingreditur sine macula:
et operatur justitiam.
Qui loquitur veritatem in corde suo:
non detrahit in lingua sua.
Nec facit proximo suo malum:
nec improbat proximum suum.
Contemptus est in oculis ejus malus:
timentes autem Dominum glorificat.
Qui jurat se affligere, non mutabit:
pecuniam suam non dedit ad usuram,
et munera super innocentem non accepit.
Qui facit haec, non movebitur in aeternum.
Lord, who shall dwell in your tabernacle:
or who can rest on your Holy mountain?
He who walks without stain:
and who works for justice.
He who speaks the truth from his heart:
and who does not disparage with his tongue.
Nor does any harm to his neighbour:
nor condemns his neighbour.
The wicked man is contemptible in his sight:
but he glorifies those that fear the Lord.
He who pledges his oath, and will not change it:
who does not engage in usury,
and does not accept bribes against the innocent.
He who does these things will never be shaken.
