Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 15:5

_ _ (Compare Leviticus 25:37; Deuteronomy 23:19, Deuteronomy 23:20).

_ _ usury is derived from a verb meaning “to bite.” All gains made by the wrongful loss of others are forbidden.

_ _ taketh reward, etc. — The innocent would not otherwise be condemned (compare Exodus 23:8; Deuteronomy 16:19). Bribery of all sorts is denounced.

_ _ doeth these, etc. — Such persons admitted to God’s presence and favor shall never be moved (Psalms 10:6; Psalms 13:5).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 15:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 15:5

To usury — In such a manner as is contrary to God's law: of which see otherwise, Exodus 22:25; Leviticus 25:36-37, &c. Reward — Or, a bribe for him who hath a bad cause. Moved — He shall abide with God here, and when he dies be for ever with the Lord.
