Psalms 101
RSV-CI
101
A Psalm of David.
1I will sing of loyalty and of justice;
to thee, O Lord, I will sing.
2I will give heed to the way that is blameless.
Oh when wilt thou come to me?
I will walk with integrity of heart
within my house;
3I will not set before my eyes
anything that is base.
I hate the work of those who fall away;
it shall not cleave to me.
4Perverseness of heart shall be far from me;
I will know nothing of evil.
5Him who slanders his neighbor secretly
I will destroy.
The man of haughty looks and arrogant heart
I will not endure.
6I 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 minster to me.
7No man who practices deceit
shall dwell in my house;
no man who utters lies
shall continue in my presence.
8Morning by morning I will destroy
all the wicked in the land,
cutting off all the evildoers
from the city of the Lord.
