1
{A Psalm of David.}
I will sing of loving-kindness and judgment: unto thee, Jehovah, will I sing psalms.
2
I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way.
When wilt thou come unto me?
I will walk within my house in the integrity of my heart.
3
I will set no thing of Belial before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside;
it shall not cleave to me.
4
A perverse heart shall depart from me;
I will not know evil.
5
Whoso secretly slandereth his neighbour, him will I destroy;
him that hath a high look and a proud heart will I not suffer.
6
Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me;
he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.
7
He that practiseth deceit shall not dwell within my house;
he that speaketh falsehoods shall not subsist in my sight.
8
Every morning will I destroy all the wicked of the land: to cut off all workers of iniquity from the city of Jehovah.
