Psalms 101

Of David. A psalm.

1 I will sing of your love and justice;
     to you, O Lord, I will sing praise.
2 I will be careful to lead a blameless life--
     when will you come to me?
I will walk in my house
     with blameless heart.
3 I will set before my eyes
     no vile thing.
The deeds of faithless men I hate;
     they will not cling to me.
4 Men of perverse heart shall be far from me;
     I will have nothing to do with evil.
5 Whoever slanders his neighbor in secret,
     him will I put to silence;
whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart,
     him will I not endure.
6 My eyes will be on the faithful in the land,
     that they may dwell with me;
he whose walk is blameless
     will minister to me.
7 No one who practices deceit
     will dwell in my house;
no one who speaks falsely
     will stand in my presence.
8 Every morning I will put to silence all the wicked in the land; I will cut off every evildoer from the city of the LORD.
