Psalm 15

Lord, who may dwell in Your sanctuary? Who may live on Your holy hill?

He whose walk is blameless and he who does what is righteous, he who speaks the truth from his heart. He who has no slander on his tongue. He who does his neighbor no wrong. He who casts no slur on his fellowman, he who despises a vile man but he who honors those who fear the Lord. He who keeps his oath even when it hurts, he who lends his money without usury. He who doesn’t accept a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.

Psalm 75:2 You say, “I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge uprightly.”

Psalm 75:7 But it is God who judges: He brings one down, He exalts another.

Psalm 105 v5 says to remember the wonders that God has done, His miracles, and the judgments He pronounced. v7 says He is the Lord our God, His judgments are in all the earth. v 8-11 tells of God’s faithfulness to His people – His covenant with Abraham and His oath sworn to Isaac – the confirmation to Jacob as a decree – and to Israel as an everlasting covenant. v12-15 tells of God’s protection of His people. v16-41 tells of Joseph’s story, how it affected Israel – how Israel grew in numbers too great for Egypt and then how He delivered Israel out of Egypt and brought them through the desert. v42 God remembered His holy promise to His servant Abraham. v43 God brought out His people with rejoicing,  chosen ones with shouts of joy; v45 that they might keep His precepts and observe His laws. Praise the Lord!

Psalm 135:4 For the Lord will vindicate His people and have compassion on His servants.
