A Psalm of David.
1
I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.
2
I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way.
O when wilt thou come unto me?
I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
3
I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside;
it shall not cleave to me.
4
A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person.
5
Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I 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 worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
8
I will early destroy all the wicked of the land;
that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.
