Psalm 101

1I will sing of steadfast love and justice;
   to you, O LORD, I will make music.
2I will ponder the way that is blameless.
   Oh when will you come to me?
I will walk with integrity of heart
   within my house;
3I will not set before my eyes
   anything that is worthless.
I hate the work of those who fall away;
   it shall not cling to me.
4A perverse heart shall be far from me;
   I will know nothing of evil.

5Whoever slanders his neighbor secretly
   I will destroy.
Whoever has a haughty look and an arrogant heart
   I will not endure.

6I will look with favor on the faithful in the land,
   that they may dwell with me;
he who walks in the way that is blameless
   shall minister to me.

7No one who practices deceit
   shall dwell in my house;
no one who utters lies
   shall continue before my eyes.

8Morning by morning I will destroy
   all the wicked in the land,
cutting off all the evildoers
   from the city of the LORD.
