Psalms 101

A Vow of Integrity

1A Davidic psalm.

I will sing of faithful love and justice;
I will sing praise to You, Lord. a
2 I will pay attention to the way of integrity.
When will You come to me?
I will live with a heart of integrity in my house. b
3 I will not set anything worthless before my eyes.
I hate the practice of transgression;
it will not cling to me. c
4 A devious heart will be far from me;
I will not be involved with
Lit not know
evil. e

5 I will destroy anyone
who secretly slanders his neighbor; f
I cannot tolerate anyone
with haughty eyes or an arrogant heart. g
6 My eyes favor the faithful of the land
so that they may sit down with me.
The one who follows the way of integrity
may serve me. h
7 No one who acts deceitfully
will live in my palace;
no one who tells lies
will remain in my presence.
Lit in front of my eyes
8 Every morning I will destroy
all the wicked of the land,
eliminating all evildoers from the Lord’s city. k
