The Psalms: 9

Psalm Nine

Lord, who shall abide in your tabernacle? Who shall dwell in your holy mountain?

He who walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.

He who does not bite with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor takes up blame and warning against his neighbor. In whose eyes a vile person is not scorned, condemned and cast out.

But he honors them who have charity and hear the doctrine of Christ.

He who does not out his money to usury or profit for tithes; nor take reward against the innocent; nor rob the poor; nor persecute the meek and the poor in heart.

He that does these things shall never be moved.

Take heed that no man deceive you; for many shall come in the Lord's name, saying—I am of Christ—and shall deceive many.

And then shall many be offended and exact over much, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another; and many false prophets shall arise, and shall deceive many; and because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

And the rains of scrutiny descend, and the floods of observation come, and the winds of prudence blow, and beat upon and shake that house. And it shall not stand.

The Gospel of the Kingdom has been sung in all the world, for a witness unto all nations. But the abomination of denying these things shall make His house desolate of Spirit. And then shall the end come, or the destruction of the wicked. Therefore, when you see these things spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place.

But I will not call the East Wind to descend. I will not shake that house or beat upon it. I will pray in the closet for these, my brethren, and if the floods come, I will descend with them. But he that remains steadfast in the doctrine of Christ and is not overcome, the same shall be saved.

Whoso reads, let him understand.
