Psalms 101

Psalm 101

I Will Walk with Integrity

A Psalm of David.

[1] I will sing of steadfast love and justice;
to you, O LORD, I will make music.
[2] I will ponder the way that is blameless.
Oh when will you come to me?
I will walk with integrity of heart
within my house;
[3] I will not set before my eyes
anything that is worthless.
I hate the work of those who fall away;
it shall not cling to me.
[4] A perverse heart shall be far from me;
I will know nothing of evil.


[5] Whoever slanders his neighbor secretly
I will destroy.
Whoever has a haughty look and an arrogant heart
I will not endure.


[6] I will look with favor on the faithful in the land,
that they may dwell with me;
he who walks in the way that is blameless
shall minister to me.


[7] No one who practices deceit
shall dwell in my house;
no one who utters lies
shall continue before my eyes.


[8] Morning by morning I will destroy
all the wicked in the land,
cutting off all the evildoers
from the city of the LORD. (ESV)
