Psalm 15: When Man First Walked Upright
"He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart"
"1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
The humans then no longer walked uprightly - not in the righteous sense, nor in their way of making a living. They went from fruit pickers, reaching up, to bent-over weed pullers (see Who Created Weeds?), looking down to the soil from which they came, for "Cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return" (see The Thinker From The Soil and Is 'Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust' Really In The Bible?)
"3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
The LORD's principles of right and wrong are absolute. They do not change because they are perfect. They are timeless.
King David knew true right and wrong because he walked uprightly before the LORD. David knew that walking in that way is the Way to Eternal Life (see The Righteous Don't Fear The Reaper).
"15:1 A Psalm of David.
