Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Oh, let me sing about faithful love and justice! I want to sing my praises to you, LORD! 1 I will sing of your love and justice; to you, O LORD, I will sing praise.
2 I want to study the way of integrity— how long before it gets here? I will walk with a heart of integrity in my own house. 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 won't set my eyes on anything worthless. I hate wrongdoing; none of that will stick to 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 A corrupt heart will be far from me. I won't be familiar with evil. 4 Men of perverse heart shall be far from me; I will have nothing to do with evil.
5 I will destroy anyone who secretly tells lies about a neighbor. I can't stomach anyone who has proud eyes or an arrogant heart. 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 focus on those who are faithful in the land, to have them close to me. The person who walks without blame will work for me. 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 But the person who acts deceitfully won't stay in my house. The person who tells lies won't last for long before me. 7 No one who practices deceit will dwell in my house; no one who speaks falsely will stand in my presence.
8 Every morning I will destroy all those who are wicked in the land in order to eliminate all evildoers from the LORD's city. 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.
