Psalm 101

A Vow of Integrity

A psalm of David.

I will sing of faithful love and justice;
I will sing praise to you, Lord.(A)
I will pay attention to the way of integrity.
When will you come to me?
I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.(B)
I will not let anything worthless guide me.[a]
I hate the practice of transgression;
it will not cling to me.(C)
A devious heart will be far from me;
I will not be involved with[b] evil.(D)

I will destroy anyone
who secretly slanders his neighbor;(E)
I cannot tolerate anyone
with haughty eyes or an arrogant heart.(F)
My eyes favor the faithful of the land
so that they may sit down with me.
The one who follows the way of integrity
may serve me.(G)
No one who acts deceitfully
will live in my palace;
the one who tells lies
will not be retained here to guide me.[c](H)
Every morning I will destroy
all the wicked of the land,
wiping out all evildoers from the Lord’s city.(I)
