Psalm 101

A Psalm by David.

101 I will sing of loving kindness and justice.
    To you, Yahweh, I will sing praises.
I will be careful to live a blameless life.
    When will you come to me?
    I will walk within my house with a blameless heart.
I will set no vile thing before my eyes.
    I hate the deeds of faithless men.
    They will not cling to me.
A perverse heart will be far from me.
    I will have nothing to do with evil.
I will silence whoever secretly slanders his neighbor.
    I won’t tolerate one who is arrogant and conceited.
My eyes will be on the faithful of the land,
    that they may dwell with me.
He who walks in a perfect way,
    he will serve me.
He who practices deceit won’t dwell within my house.
    He who speaks falsehood won’t be established before my eyes.
Morning by morning, I will destroy all the wicked of the land,
    to cut off all the workers of iniquity from Yahweh’s city.
