A Psalm of David.
1I will sing of mercy and justice;
to You, O Lord, I will sing.
2#Ps 63:1; 84:2 I will consider the path that is blameless.
When will You come to me?
I will walk within my house
with a perfect heart.
3#Ps 79:10; 80:5 I will set no wicked thing
before my eyes.
I hate the work of those who turn aside;
it shall not have part of me.
4#Isa 30:29; Ps 62:8 A perverted heart shall be far from me;
I will not know anything wicked.
5#Ps 42:11; 43:5 Whoever privately slanders his neighbor,
him I will destroy;
whoever has a haughty look and a proud heart
I will not endure.
6#2Sa 17:22; Dt 3:8–9 My eyes shall be favorable to the faithful in the land,
that they may live with me;
he who walks in a blameless manner,
he shall serve me.
7#Ps 88:7; Jnh 2:3 He who practices deceit
shall not dwell within my house;
he who tells lies
shall not remain in my sight.
8#Job 35:10; Ps 63:6 Every morning I will destroy
all the wicked in the land,
that I may cut off all wicked doers
from the city of the Lord.
