Psalm 15 is the 15th psalm of the Book of Psalms.

According to the International Critical Commentary, "Ps[alm] 15 is a didactic poem, inquiring what sort of man is qualified to be a guest of Yahweh (v. 1); describing him in accordance with a decalogue of duties (v. 2-5b) and declaring such a man secure (v. 5c)." [1]

Although the Psalm is captioned "A Psalm of David," and the Gemara also attributes this Psalm to David, Charles and Emilie Briggs considered this claim of authorship "unhistoric."[2]
