Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 A psalm of David: I am singing of grace and justice; I am singing to you, ADONAI. 1 I will sing of your love and justice; to you, O LORD, I will sing praise.
2 I will follow the path of integrity; when will you come to me? I will run my life with a sincere heart inside 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 will not allow before my eyes any shameful thing. I hate those who act crookedly; what they do does not attract 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 Deviousness will depart from me; I will not tolerate evil. 4 Men of perverse heart shall be far from me; I will have nothing to do with evil.
5 If someone slanders another in secret, I will cut him off. Haughty eyes and proud hearts I cannot abide. 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 look to the faithful of the land, so that they can be my companions; those who live lives of integrity can be servants of mine. 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 deceitful person can live in my house; no liar can be my advisor. 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 the wicked of the land, cutting off all evildoers from the city of ADONAI. 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.
