Psalms 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.+
