Ps 15:1-5. Those who are fit for communion with God may be known by a conformity to His law, which is illustrated in various important particulars.

1. abide—or, "sojourn" (compare Ps 5:4), where it means under God's protection here, as (Ps 23:6, 27:4, 6) communion.

tabernacle—seat of the ark (2Sa 6:17), the symbol of God's presence.

holy hill—(Compare Ps 2:6).

2. walketh—(Compare Ps 1:1).

uprightly—in a complete manner, as to all parts of conduct (Ge 17:1), not as to degree.

worketh—or, "does."

righteousness—what is right.

in his heart—sincerely (Pr 23:7).
