PSALM 101

Mercy and Judgment

A psalm to David.

About mercy and judgment I shall sing to you, O  lord. I shall strum, and I shall perceive in [2way 1an unblemished]. When shall you come to me? I traveled in the innocence of my heart; in the midst of my house. I did not set before my eyes [2thing 1an illegal]; [2ones committing 3violations 1I detested]. [3cleaved not 4to me 2heart 1A crooked], turning aside from me, the wicked man I knew not. The one speaking ill in private of the ones near him -- this one I drove out. Proud eye and insatiable heart -- with this one I ate not. My eyes are upon the trustworthy of the land, for them to sit together with me, going in [2way 1an unblemished]. This one officiated to me. [3dwelt not 4in 5the midst 6of my house 1one having 2pride]. One speaking unjust did not conduct anything before my eyes. Into the morning I killed all the sinners of the land; to utterly destroy from out of the city of the  lord all the ones practicing lawlessness.
