1A psalm of David:
I am singing of grace and justice;
I am singing to you, Adonai.
2I will follow the path of integrity;
when will you come to me?
I will run my life with a sincere heart
inside my own house.
3I will not allow before my eyes
any shameful thing.
I hate those who act crookedly;
what they do does not attract me.
4Deviousness will depart from me;
I will not tolerate evil.
5If someone slanders another in secret,
I will cut him off.
Haughty eyes and proud hearts
I cannot abide.
6I look to the faithful of the land,
so that they can be my companions;
those who live lives of integrity
can be servants of mine.
7No deceitful person can live in my house;
no liar can be my advisor.
8Every morning I will destroy
all the wicked of the land,
cutting off all evildoers
from the city of Adonai.
