Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Domine, quis habitabit in tabernaculo tuo
aut quis requiescet in monte sancto tuo?
Qui ingreditur sine macula:
et operatur justiciam.
Qui loquitur veritatem in corde suo:
qui non egit dolum in lingua sua.
Nec fecit proximo suo malum:
et opprobrium non accepit adversus proximos suos.

Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary?
Who may live on your holy hill?
He whose walk is blameless
and who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from his heart
and has no slander on his tongue,
who does his neighbour no wrong
and casts no slur on his fellowman.
