A Vow of Integrity

A Davidic psalm.

1 I will sing of faithful love and justice; I will sing praise to You, Lord.
2 I will pay attention to the way of integrity. When will You come to me? I will live with integrity of heart in my house.
3 I will not set anything godless before my eyes. I hate the doing of transgression; it will not cling to me.
4 A devious heart will be far from me; I will not be involved witha evil.
5 I will destroy anyone who secretly slanders his neighbor; I cannot tolerate anyone with haughty eyes or an arrogant heart.b
6 My eyes [favor] the faithful of the land so that they may sit down with me. The one who follows the way of integrity may serve me.
7 No one who acts deceitfully will live in my palace; no one who tells liesc will remain in my presence.d
8 Every morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land, eliminating all evildoerse from the Lord's city.
