Psalm 101

A psalm by David.

I will sing about mercy and justice.
    O Yahweh, I will make music to praise you.
I want to understand the path to integrity.
    When will you come to me?

I will live in my own home with integrity.
I will not put anything wicked in front of my eyes.
    I hate what unfaithful people do.
    I want no part of it.
I will keep far away from devious minds.
    I will have nothing to do with evil.
I will destroy anyone who secretly slanders his neighbor.
    I will not tolerate anyone with a conceited look or arrogant heart.
My eyes will be watching the faithful people in the land
    so that they may live with me.
        The person who lives with integrity will serve me.

The one who does deceitful things will not stay in my home.
    The one who tells lies will not remain in my presence.

Every morning I will destroy all the wicked people in the land
    to rid Yahweh’s city of all troublemakers.
