We Walk Blamelessly and Do What is Right

Psalm 15 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)

A Psalm of David.

15 O Jehovah, who may be a guest[1] in your tent?
Who shall dwell on your holy mountain?

2 He who walks blamelessly and does what is right
and speaks truth in his heart;

The Hebrew word rendered “blameless” is tamim, is not a reference to a perfect condition, one without sin; it is simply living an exemplary moral life, a life that is whole or sound. When the tamim is used in reference to humans that live during this time of imperfection, it is meant in a relative sense, not as an absolute. If we look at all of the good characteristics and qualities of the Bible, which all Christians are subject to possessing, it must be in a balanced manner. He is not expected to be perfect in all of them. He is expected to meet a certain level of competence of each, not being out of balance. He would not be kind in the extreme to others, but lack self-control in private. What does “walking” signify here? It is used in a figurative sense of following a certain course of action, life course, which is outlined in God’s Word, to the extent that he finds favor in God’s eyes. – Psalm 1:1; 3 John 1:3-4.
