101 I will sing of your ·love [loyalty] and ·fairness [justice; judgment]; Lord, I will ·sing praises [make a psalm] to you. 2 I will ·be careful to live [lead; or study] ·an innocent life [the way that is blameless]. When will ·you [or it; C the “way that is blameless”] come to me?
I will ·live [go; walk] ·an innocent life [L in the blamelessness of my heart] in my house. 3 I will not ·look at [L set before my eyes] anything ·wicked [vile]. I hate those who ·turn against you [are crooked/transgressors]; they will not ·be found near [cling to] me. 4 Let those who ·want to do wrong [L have a perverse heart] stay away from me; I ·will have nothing to do with [L do not know] evil. 5 If anyone secretly ·says things against [slanders] his neighbor, I will ·stop [destroy; silence] him. I will not allow people to ·be proud [L have broad hearts] and ·look down on others [L haughty eyes; 131:1].
6 ·I will look for trustworthy people [L My eyes are on the faithful of the land] so ·I can live with them [L they may dwell with me]. Only those who ·live innocent lives [L walk in the way of blamelessness] will ·be my servants [L serve me]. 7 No one who ·is dishonest [deceives] will live in my house; no ·liars [L one who speaks falsehoods] will ·stay around me [L be established before my eyes]. 8 Every morning I will ·destroy [silence] all the wicked in the land. I will ·rid [cut off] the Lord’s city [C Jerusalem; 46:4] of people who do evil.
