101 I will sing of [steadfast] lovingkindness and justice; To You, O Lord, I will sing praises. 2 I will behave wisely and follow the way of integrity. When will You come to me? I will walk in my house in integrity and with a blameless heart. 3 I will set no worthless or wicked thing before my eyes. I hate the practice of those who fall away [from the right path]; It will not grasp hold of me. 4 A perverse heart shall depart from me; I will not tolerate evil. 5 Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, him I will silence; The one who has a haughty look and a proud (arrogant) heart I will not tolerate.
6 My eyes will be on the faithful (honorable) of the land, that they may dwell with me; He who walks blamelessly is the one who will minister to and serve me. 7 He who practices deceit will not dwell in my house; He who tells lies and half-truths will not continue [to remain] in my presence. 8 Morning after morning I will destroy all the wicked in the land, That I may cut off from the city of the Lord all those who do evil.
