Psalm 101Common English Bible (CEB)

Psalm 101

Of David. A psalm.

101 Oh, let me sing about faithful love and justice!
    I want to sing my praises to you, Lord!
I want to study the way of integrity—
    how long before it gets here?
        I will walk with a heart of integrity
        in my own house.
I won’t set my eyes on anything worthless.
    I hate wrongdoing;
    none of that will stick to me.
A corrupt heart will be far from me.
    I won’t be familiar with evil.
I will destroy anyone
    who secretly tells lies about a neighbor.
I can’t stomach anyone
    who has proud eyes or an arrogant heart.
My eyes focus on those
    who are faithful in the land,
    to have them close to me.
The person who walks without blame
    will work for me.
But the person who acts deceitfully
    won’t stay in my house.
The person who tells lies
    won’t last for long before me.
Every morning I will destroy
    all those who are wicked in the land
        in order to eliminate all evildoers
        from the Lord’s city.
