1 01 (Of Dovid. Mizmor) I will sing of chesed and mishpat; unto Thee, Hashem, will I sing.
2 I will study the derech tamim. O when wilt Thou come unto me? I will walk within my bais with tam levav.
3 I will set no devar beliyya’al before mine eyes; I hate the work of them that fall away; it shall not cleave to me.
4 A lev ikkesh (perverse heart) shall be far from me; I will not tolerate rah.
5 The one who slandereth ba’seter (in secret) his neighbor, him will I destroy; him that hath haughty einayim (eyes) and a proud levav will I not endure.
6 Mine eyes shall be upon the ne’emenei eretz (faithful of the land), that they may dwell with me; he that walketh in a derech tamim, he shall minister to me.
7 He that worketh remiyyah (deceit) shall not dwell within my bais; he that speaketh shekarim (falsehoods, lies) shall not continue in my presence.
8 In the bokerim I will destroy all rishei eretz (wicked ones of the land); that I may cut off all doers of evil from the Ir Hashem.
