Psalm 101

 

A Psalm of David.

1 I will sing of mercy and judgment:
Unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.
2 I will behave myself wisely
In a perfect way.
O when wilt thou come unto me?
I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside;
It shall not cleave to me.
4 A froward heart shall depart from me:
I will not know a wicked person.

5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour,
Him will I cut off:
Him that hath an high look
And a proud heart will not I suffer.
6 Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful
Of the land, that they may dwell with me:

He that walketh in a perfect way,
He shall serve me.
7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house:
He that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; That I may cut off
All wicked doers from the city of the LORD.
