I’m thinking…

…about Psalm 15.

The Message translation (Eugene H. Peterson) gives a contemporary flavor:

God, who gets invited

to dinner at your place?

How do we get on your guest list?

“Walk straight,

act right,

tell the truth.

“Don’t hurt your friend,

don’t blame your neighbor;

despise the despicable

“Keep your word even when it costs you,

make an honest living,

never take a bribe.

“You’ll never get


if you live like this.”
