Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 My song is about loyalty and justice, and I sing it to you, O Lord. 1 I will sing of your love and justice; to you, O LORD, I will sing praise.
2 My conduct will be faultless. When will you come to me? I will live a pure life in 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 and will never tolerate evil. I hate the actions of those who turn away from God; I will have nothing to do with them. 3 I will set before my eyes no vile thing. The deeds of faithless men I hate; they will not cling to me.
4 I will not be dishonest and will have no dealings with evil. 4 Men of perverse heart shall be far from me; I will have nothing to do with evil.
5 I will get rid of anyone who whispers evil things about someone else; I will not tolerate anyone who is proud and arrogant. 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 approve of those who are faithful to God and will let them live in my palace. Those who are completely honest will be allowed to serve 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 liar will live in my palace; no hypocrite will remain in my presence. 7 No one who practices deceit will dwell in my house; no one who speaks falsely will stand in my presence.
8 Day after day I will destroy the wicked in our land; I will expel all who are evil 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.
