A Sovereign’s Pledge of Integrity and Justice

A Psalm of David.

101 I will sing of loyalty and of justice;
    to thee, O Lord, I will sing.
I will give heed to the way that is blameless.
    Oh when wilt thou come to me?

I will walk with integrity of heart
    within my house;
I will not set before my eyes
    anything that is base.

I hate the work of those who fall away;
    it shall not cleave to me.
Perverseness of heart shall be far from me;
    I will know nothing of evil.

Him who slanders his neighbor secretly
    I will destroy.
The man of haughty looks and arrogant heart
    I will not endure.

I will look with favor on the faithful in the land,
    that they may dwell with me;
he who walks in the way that is blameless
    shall minster to me.

No man who practices deceit
    shall dwell in my house;
no man who utters lies
    shall continue in my presence.

Morning by morning I will destroy
    all the wicked in the land,
cutting off all the evildoers
    from the city of the Lord.
