Psalm 101

A Sovereign's Pledge of Integrity and Justice

A Psalm of David.

1I will sing of loyalty and of justice;

to thee, O Lord, I will sing.

2I 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;

3I 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.

4Perverseness of heart shall be far from me;

I will know nothing of evil.

5Him who slanders his neighbor secretly

I will destroy.

The man of haughty looks and arrogant heart

I will not endure.

6I 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 minster to me.

7No man who practices deceit

shall dwell in my house;

no man who utters lies

shall continue in my presence.

8Morning by morning I will destroy

all the wicked in the land,

cutting off all the evildoers

from the city of the Lord.
