Who Can Dwell With Almighty God? – Psalm 15:1-5

Lord, who may dwell in Your sacred tent?
    Who may live on Your Holy mountain?

Who Can Dwell With Almighty God? – Psalm 15:1-5

Lord, who may dwell in Your sacred tent?
    Who may live on Your Holy mountain?
The one whose walk is blameless,
    who does what is righteous,
    who speaks the truth from their heart;
whose tongue utters no slander,
    who does no wrong to a neighbor,
    and casts no slur on others;
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;
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.

Who Can Dwell With Almighty God? – Psalm 15:1-5

The psalmist of Psalm 15 had one question on his mind: Who can dwell with Almighty God? This question should also be on our minds. In our prayers, we should be asking the Lord who may dwell in His Sacred Tent; who may live on His Holy Mountain. One of the most powerful aspects of the Book of Psalms is that it is God-breathed. This means that through His Word, He will speak to us; God will give us the answers to all of our questions.

Within this particular psalm, we find the answer to who may dwell with Him in His holy place:

Those whose walk is blameless;
those who do what is righteous;
those who speak truth;
whose tongue utters no slander;
who does no wrong to their neighbor;
who casts no slurs on other people;
who despise vile evil-doers but
honor those who reverently fear the Lord;
those who keep an oath even when challenged;
those who lend to the poor expecting nothing in return;
and those who refuse to accept bribes against the innocent.

Having faith in God and in His Word is a requirement of faith. An act of faith is displaying obedience to His commands and precepts. Said differently, faith-filled obedience is active not passive: Faith without works is dead (Js 2:26). To this end, the Lord assures His people that those who do what He has commanded, those things listed above for example, will never be shaken;He will always honor righteousness, fairness, peace, love and truth. The point is, when you walk according to His precepts, you will never go astray.


Lord God, thank You for telling us the way in which we should go. Thank You for allowing us to dwell in Your sacred Tent wherein we will rest under the mighty wings of Your protection. In Your precious and Holy Name we pray. Amen.
