After speaking about those that despise God and are foolish and rebellious, David focuses on what God looks for in people. The theme is clear, Godly people are focused on the needs and lives of others and not on themselves. Godly people would never hurt or slander others but would instead seek to uplift the needy and ignore those that do evil.
They tell the truth and keep their word even when doing so hurts. they support the poor and needy without judging or expecting a return for that support. They seek to honor God and love others above all else. God loves to honor those that live holy lives. He truly seeks to uplift them and make their lives count. David wanted to be that kind of man and that kind of king.
In our lives, we too want to be those kinds of people. We also want to honor God with our thoughts and actions. We want to please Him and love and help others. We want our focus to be upon God and we want all that we do to honor Him. God knows our hearts and He will assist us to be the ones He loves and upholds. We must trust God and allow Him to carry us through.
God Bless You
Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent?
Who may live on your holy mountain?
2 The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from their heart;
3 whose tongue utters no slander,
who does no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others;
4 who despises a vile person
but honors those who fear the Lord;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
and does not change their mind;
5 who lends money to the poor without interest;
who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
Whoever does these things
will never be shaken.
