To be a man

O Lord, who may live in Your tent?
Who may dwell on Your holy hill?
He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness,
And who speaks the truth from his heart.
Who has no slander with his tongue,
Who does no evil to his neighbor,
Who casts no slur on his fellowman;
In whose eyes a vile man is despised,
But who honors those who fear the Lord.
Who keeps his oath even when it hurts and does not change;
Who does not loan his money at interest,
And who takes no bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things will never be shaken.
