A Psalm by David.
1I will sing of loving kindness and justice.
To you, Lord, I will sing praises.
2I will be careful to live a blameless life.
When will you come to me?
I will walk within my house with a blameless heart.
3I will set no vile thing before my eyes.
I hate the deeds of faithless men.
They will not cling to me.
4A perverse heart will be far from me.
I will have nothing to do with evil.
5I will silence whoever secretly slanders his neighbour.
I won’t tolerate one who is arrogant and conceited.
6My eyes will be on the faithful of the land,
that they may dwell with me.
He who walks in a perfect way,
he will serve me.
7He who practices deceit won’t dwell within my house.
He who speaks falsehood won’t be established before my eyes.
8Morning by morning, I will destroy all the wicked of the land,
to cut off all the workers of iniquity from the Lord’s city.
