Psalm 101New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Norm of Life for Rulers
1 A psalm of David.
I sing of mercy and justice;
to you, Lord, I sing praise.
2 I study the way of integrity;
when will you come to me?
I act with integrity of heart
within my household.
3 I do not allow into my presence anything base.
I hate wrongdoing;
I will have no part of it.
4 May the devious heart keep far from me;
the wicked I will not acknowledge.
5 Whoever slanders a neighbor in secret
I will reduce to silence.
Haughty eyes and arrogant hearts
I cannot endure.
6 I look to the faithful of the land
to sit at my side.
Whoever follows the way of integrity
is the one to enter my service.
7 No one who practices deceit
can remain within my house.
No one who speaks falsely
can last in my presence.
8 Morning after morning I clear all the wicked from the land,
to rid the city of the Lord of all doers of evil.
