Psalm 101

A psalm of David.

1 I will sing about your love and fairness. Lord, I will sing praise to you.
2 I will be careful to lead a life that is without blame. When will you come and help me? I will lead a life that is without blame in my house.
3 I won't look at anything that is evil. I hate the acts of people who aren't faithful to you. I don't even want people like that around me.
4 I will stay away from those whose hearts are twisted. I don't want to have anything to do with evil.
5 I will get rid of anyone who tells lies about his neighbor in secret. I won't put up with anyone whose eyes and heart are proud.
6 I will look with favor on the faithful people in the land. They will live with me. Those whose lives are without blame will serve me.
7 No one who lies and cheats will live in my house. No one who tells lies will serve me.
8 Every morning I will get rid of all the sinful people in the land. I will remove from the city of the LORD everyone who does what is evil.
