Psalm 15: 2-3, 3-4, 4-5
Our responsorial psalm for this week comes from Psalm 15, which addresses the question of religious fitness.
In its entirety, the psalm describes a liturgical scrutiny at the entrance to the Temple court. The Israelite wishing to be admitted was required to ask the Temple official what conduct was appropriate to God’s precincts. This question produces a response that spells out eleven requirements to do with honorable and loyal conduct towards others.
