Psalm 100

A psalm. For giving grateful praise.

Shout for joy(A) to the Lord, all the earth.
    Worship the Lord(B) with gladness;
    come before him(C) with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.(D)
    It is he who made us,(E) and we are his[a];
    we are his people,(F) the sheep of his pasture.(G)

Enter his gates with thanksgiving(H)
    and his courts(I) with praise;
    give thanks to him and praise his name.(J)
For the Lord is good(K) and his love endures forever;(L)
    his faithfulness(M) continues through all generations.

Psalm 101

Of David. A psalm.

I will sing of your love(N) and justice;
    to you, Lord, I will sing praise.
I will be careful to lead a blameless life(O)
    when will you come to me?

I will conduct the affairs(P) of my house
    with a blameless heart.
I will not look with approval
    on anything that is vile.(Q)

I hate what faithless people do;(R)
    I will have no part in it.
The perverse of heart(S) shall be far from me;
    I will have nothing to do with what is evil.

Whoever slanders their neighbor(T) in secret,
    I will put to silence;
whoever has haughty eyes(U) and a proud heart,
    I will not tolerate.

My eyes will be on the faithful in the land,
    that they may dwell with me;
the one whose walk is blameless(V)
    will minister to me.

No one who practices deceit
    will dwell in my house;
no one who speaks falsely
    will stand in my presence.

Every morning(W) I will put to silence
    all the wicked(X) in the land;
I will cut off every evildoer(Y)
    from the city of the Lord.(Z)
