New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 I will sing of your love and fairness; Lord, I will sing praises to you. 1 I will sing of your love and justice; to you, O LORD, I will sing praise.
2 I will be careful to live an innocent life. When will you come to me? I will live an innocent 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 I will not look at anything wicked. I hate those who turn against you; they will not be found 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 Let those who want to do wrong stay away from me; I will have nothing to do with evil. 4 Men of perverse heart shall be far from me; I will have nothing to do with evil.
5 If anyone secretly says things against his neighbor, I will stop him. I will not allow people to be proud and look down on others. 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 for trustworthy people so I can live with them in the land. Only those who live innocent lives will be my servants. 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 is dishonest will live in my house; no liars will stay around 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 the wicked in the land. I will rid the Lord's city of people who do evil. A prayer of a person who is suffering when he is discouraged and tells the Lord his complaints. 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.
