Psalm 15: Who is "Blameless"?

Romans 5:3-5, Psalm 15, what it means to be blameless
What it means to be "blameless" according to Scripture...

In Psalm 15, David says that only he whose "walk is blameless" may dwell with the Lord. 

What does this mean? 

Obviously, no one is completely good (Romans 3:23). So blameless cannot mean perfect. Nor does blameless mean "sincere" because we can be sincerely wrong. 

Being blameless involves:
The blameless man or woman understands that "suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us." Romans 5:3-5 

Knowing God's Word, obeying His commands, repenting of sin and persevering in trials makes a person "blameless" and gives him close fellowship with the Lord. 

May we be such people.
