English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
1 I will sing of steadfast love and justice; to you, O LORD, I will make music. 1 I will sing of your love and justice; to you, O LORD, I will sing praise.
2 I will ponder the way that is blameless. Oh when will you come to me? I will walk with integrity of heart within my 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 will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling 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 perverse heart shall be far from me; I will know nothing of evil. 4 Men of perverse heart shall be far from me; I will have nothing to do with evil.
5 Whoever slanders his neighbor secretly I will destroy. Whoever has a haughty look and an arrogant heart I will not endure. 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 I 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 minister to 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 No one who practices deceit shall dwell in my house; no one who utters lies shall continue 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 I will destroy all the wicked in the land, cutting off all the evildoers from the city of the LORD. 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.
