#Psalmtweet #Psalter 15

In Yahweh's tent there is rest for the guest.

מִזְמ֗וֹר לְדָ֫וִ֥ד
יְ֭הֹוָה מִי־יָג֣וּר בְּאָהֳלֶ֑ךָ
מִֽי־יִ֝שְׁכֹּ֗ן בְּהַ֣ר קָדְשֶֽׁךָ
1 A psalm of David.
Yahweh who will guest in your tent?
Who will dwell on your holy hill?
a mzmor ldvid
ihvh mi-igur baohlç
mi-iwcon bhr qodwç
m/zmr l/dvd
ihvh mi i/gvr b/ahl\c
mi i/wcn b/hr qdw\c

 This tricolon has first the inscription with a cadence on the second note of the scale, then a question coming to a rest in bar 5, and its parallel returning to the tonic in a traditional simple phrase. The whole phrase is unique, but 28 verses in the three books have this phrase shape as the last part of a verse.
