Psalm 15:4

(A Psalm of David.) LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

2

He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.

3

He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

4

In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.

5

He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

COMMENTARY

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 15:4

15:4 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.

 


Bendito Palavra's Psalms Chapter 15 comment on 10/26/2020, 6:27pm...

He that sweareth to his own hurt and changeth not is a person that takes an oath. When such a commitment comes with a higher personal cost than first anticipated, some with less integrity would back down and not follow through. This person values honesty and the sincerity of his word more than his own personal welfare.
