Psalm 101

1 My song shall be of steadfastness and justice:
    to you, Lord, will I sing.
2 I will be wise in the way of innocence:
    O when will you come to me?
3 I will walk within my house:
    in purity of heart.
4 I will set nothing evil before my eyes:
    I hate the sin of backsliders, it shall get no hold on me.
5 Crookedness of heart shall depart from me:
    I will know nothing of wickedness. [6 Those who secretly slander their neighbours I will destroy:
    the proud look and the arrogant heart I will not endure.]
7 My eyes shall look to the faithful in the land, and they shall make their home with me:
    those who walk in the way of innocence, they shall minister to me.
8 No one who practises deceit shall live in my house:
    no one who utters lies shall stand in my sight. [9 Morning by morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land:
    and cut off all evildoers from the city of the Lord.]
