Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 I will make a song of mercy and righteousness; to you, O Lord, will I make melody. 1 I will sing of your love and justice; to you, O LORD, I will sing praise.
2 I will do wisely in the way of righteousness: O when will you come to me? I will be walking in my house with a true heart. 2 I will be careful to lead a blameless life-- when will you come to me? I will walk in my house with blameless heart.
3 I will not put any evil thing before my eyes; I am against all turning to one side; I will not have it near me. 3 I will set before my eyes no vile thing. The deeds of faithless men I hate; they will not cling to me.
4 The false heart I will send away from me: I will not have an evil-doer for a friend. 4 Men of perverse heart shall be far from me; I will have nothing to do with evil.
5 I will put to death anyone who says evil of his neighbour secretly; the man with a high look and a heart of pride is disgusting to me. 5 Whoever slanders his neighbor in secret, him will I put to silence; whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart, him will I not endure.
6 My eyes will be on those of good faith in the land, so that they may be living in my house; he who is walking in the right way will be my servant. 6 My eyes will be on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me; he whose walk is blameless will minister to me.
7 The worker of deceit will not come into my house; the false man will have no place before my eyes. 7 No one who practices deceit will dwell in my house; no one who speaks falsely will stand in my presence.
8 Morning by morning will I put to death all the sinners in the land, so that all evil-doers may be cut off from Jerusalem. 8 Every morning I will put to silence all the wicked in the land; I will cut off every evildoer from the city of the LORD.
