A Psalm of David. I will sing of loyalty and of justice; to thee, O LORD, I will sing.
I will give heed to the way that is blameless. Oh when wilt thou come to me? I will walk with integrity of heart within my house;
I will not set before my eyes anything that is base. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cleave to me.
Perverseness of heart shall be far from me; I will know nothing of evil.
Him who slanders his neighbor secretly I will destroy. The man of haughty looks and arrogant heart I will not endure.
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.
No man who practices deceit shall dwell in my house; no man who utters lies shall continue in my presence.
Morning by morning I will destroy all the wicked in the land, cutting off all the evildoers from the city of the LORD.
