Psalm 101

1 Of David. A melody.
I will sing about loyal love and justice. To you, O Jehovah, I will sing praises.

2 I will act with discretion and blamelessness. When will you come to me? I will walk with integrity of heart inside my house.

3 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.

4 A crooked heart is far from me; I will not accept what is bad.

5 Anyone slandering his neighbor in secret, I will silence. Anyone with haughty eyes and an arrogant heart, I will not tolerate.

6 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.

7 No deceitful person will dwell in my house, And no liar will stand in my presence.

8 Every morning I will silence all the wicked of the earth, To cut off all wrongdoers from the city of Jehovah.
