Ps 101

A Sovereign's Pledge of Integrity and Justice Of David. A Psalm. 1I will sing of loyalty and of justice; to you, O Lord, I will sing.2I will study the way that is blameless. When shall I attain it? I will walk with integrity of heart within my house;3I will not set before my eyes anything that is base. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me.4Perverseness of heart shall be far from me; I will know nothing of evil. 5One who secretly slanders a neighbor I will destroy. A haughty look and an arrogant heart I will not tolerate. 6I will look with favor on the faithful in the land, so that they may live with me; whoever walks in the way that is blameless shall minister to me. 7No one who practices deceit shall remain in my house; no one who utters lies shall continue in my presence. 8Morning by morning I will destroy all the wicked in the land, cutting off all evildoers from the city of the Lord.
