American Standard Version
The psalmist’s profession of uprightness.
A Psalm of David.
101 I will sing of lovingkindness and justice:
Unto thee, O Jehovah, will I sing praises.
2 I will [a]behave myself wisely in a perfect way:
Oh when wilt thou come unto me?
I will walk within my house [b]with a perfect heart.
3 I will set no base thing before mine eyes:
I hate [c]the work of them that turn aside;
It shall not cleave unto me.
4 A perverse heart shall depart from me:
I will know no [d]evil thing.
5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbor, him will I destroy:
Him that hath a high look and a proud heart will I not suffer.
6 Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me:
He that walketh in a perfect way, he shall minister unto me.
7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house:
He that speaketh falsehood shall not be established before mine eyes.
8 Morning by morning will I destroy all the wicked of the land;
To cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of Jehovah.
