Consider the Way of the Blameless

Of David. A Psalm.

101 I will (A)sing of lovingkindness and [a]justice,
To You, O Yahweh, I will sing praises.
I will [b](B)consider the way of the blameless.
When will You come to me?
I will walk within my house in the [c](C)integrity of my heart.
I will set no (D)vile thing before my eyes;
I hate the [d]work of those who (E)fall away;
It shall not cling to me.
A (F)crooked heart shall depart from me;
I will know no evil.
Whoever secretly (G)slanders his neighbor, him I will [e]destroy;
Whoever has a (H)haughty look and an arrogant heart, I will not endure.

My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may abide with me;
He who walks in the (I)way of the blameless is the one who will minister to me.
He who (J)practices deceit shall not dwell within my house;
He who speaks lies (K)shall not be established before my eyes.
(L)Every morning I will [f](M)destroy all the wicked of the land,
To (N)cut off from the (O)city of Yahweh all the workers of iniquity.
