Psalm 101

A Psalm of David.

I will sing of mercy and justice;
    to You, O Lord, I will sing.
I will consider the path that is blameless.
    When will You come to me?

I will walk within my house
    with a perfect heart.
I will set no wicked thing
    before my eyes.

I hate the work of those who turn aside;
    it shall not have part of me.
A perverted heart shall be far from me;
    I will not know anything wicked.

Whoever privately slanders his neighbor,
    him I will destroy;
whoever has a haughty look and a proud heart
    I will not endure.

My eyes shall be favorable to the faithful in the land,
    that they may live with me;
he who walks in a blameless manner,
    he shall serve me.

He who practices deceit
    shall not dwell within my house;
he who tells lies
    shall not remain in my sight.

Every morning I will destroy
    all the wicked in the land,
that I may cut off all wicked doers
    from the city of the Lord.
