Psalm 101:1-8

Of David. A melody. 101  About loving-kindness and judgment I will sing.+To you, O Jehovah, I will make melody.+   I will act with discretion in a faultless way.+When will you come to me?+I shall walk about in the integrity of my heart inside my house.+   I shall not set in front of my eyes any good-for-nothing thing.*+The doing of those who fall away I have hated;+It does not cling to me.+   A crooked heart departs from me;+Nothing bad do I know.+   Anyone slandering his companion in secrecy,+Him I silence.+Anyone of haughty eyes and of arrogant heart,*+Him I cannot endure.+   My eyes are upon the faithful ones of the earth,+That they may dwell with me.+The one walking in a faultless way,+He it is who will minister to me.+   There will dwell inside my house no worker of trickiness.+As for anyone speaking falsehoods, he will not be firmly established+In front of my eyes.+   Every morning* I shall silence all the wicked ones of the earth,+To cut off from the city+ of Jehovah all the practicers of what is hurtful.+
