LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle?
Who may dwell in Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly,
And works righteousness,
And speaks the truth in his heart;

Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend;
The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way,
But the folly of fools is deceit.

His wickedness will be revealed before the assembly.
A lying tongue hates those who are crushed by it,
And a flattering mouth works ruin.

" Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths
And honor Me with their lips,
But have removed their hearts far from Me,
And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,

Among this people,
A marvelous work and a wonder;
For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish,
And the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden."
Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the LORD,
And their works are in the dark;
They say, "Who sees us?" and, "Who knows us?"
" These people draw near to Me with their mouth,
Andhonor Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
