Psalm 101

The Psalmist’s Profession of Uprightness.

A Psalm of David.

1I will sing of lovingkindness and [a]justice,
To You, O Lord, I will sing praises.
I will [b]give heed to the [c]blameless way.
When will You come to me?
I will walk within my house in the [d]integrity of my heart.
I will set no worthless thing before my eyes;
I hate the [e]work of those who fall away;
It shall not fasten its grip on me.
A perverse heart shall depart from me;
I will know no evil.
Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, him I will [f]destroy;
No one who has a haughty look and an arrogant heart will I endure.

My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me;
He who walks in a [g]blameless way is the one who will minister to me.
He who practices deceit shall not dwell within my house;
He who speaks falsehood shall not [h]maintain his position before me.
Every morning I will [i]destroy all the wicked of the land,
So as to cut off from the city of the Lord all those who do iniquity.

Psalm 101

Psalm 101

A psalm of David.

I will sing about your love and fairness.
    Lord, I will sing praise to you.
I will be careful to lead a life
    that is without blame.
    When will you come and help me?

In my own home I will lead a life
    that is without blame.
    I won’t look at anything that is evil and call it good.

I hate the acts of people who aren’t faithful to you.
    I won’t have anything to do with those things.
I will stay away from those whose hearts are twisted.
    I won’t have anything to do with what is evil.

I will get rid of anyone
    who tells lies about their neighbor in secret.
I won’t put up with anyone
    whose eyes and heart are proud.

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.

No one who lies and cheats
    will live in my house.
No one who tells lies
    will serve me.

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.
