Psalms 101:1-8

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • A ruler acting with integrity

    • ‘I will not tolerate haughtiness’ (5)

    • “I will look to the faithful ones” (6)

Of David. A melody. 101  I will sing about loyal love and justice. To you, O Jehovah, I will sing praises.*   I will act with discretion and blamelessness.* When will you come to me? I will walk with integrity of heart+ inside my house.   I will not set anything worthless* before my eyes. I hate the deeds of those who deviate from what is right;+ I will have nothing to do with them.*   A crooked heart is far from me; I will not accept* what is bad.   Anyone slandering his neighbor in secret,+ I will silence.* Anyone with haughty eyes and an arrogant heart, I will not tolerate.   I will look to the faithful ones of the earth, So that they may dwell with me. The one walking in blamelessness* will minister to me.   No deceitful person will dwell in my house, And no liar will stand in my presence.*   Every morning I will silence* all the wicked of the earth, To cut off all wrongdoers from the city of Jehovah.+
