Psalm 101

A Sovereign’s Pledge of Integrity and Justice

Of David. A Psalm.

1

I will sing of loyalty and of justice;

to you, O Lord, I will sing.

2

I will study the way that is blameless.

When shall I attain it?

 

I will walk with integrity of heart

within my house;

3

I will not set before my eyes

anything that is base.

 

I hate the work of those who fall away;

it shall not cling to me.

4

Perverseness of heart shall be far from me;

I will know nothing of evil.

 

5

One who secretly slanders a neighbor

I will destroy.

A haughty look and an arrogant heart

I will not tolerate.

 

6

I will look with favor on the faithful in the land,

so that they may live with me;

whoever walks in the way that is blameless

shall minister to me.

 

7

No one who practices deceit

shall remain in my house;

no one who utters lies

shall continue in my presence.

 

8

Morning by morning I will destroy

all the wicked in the land,

cutting off all evildoers

from the city of the Lord.
