(A psalm by David.) A King and His Promises) 101 1I will sing to you, LORD! I will celebrate your kindness and your justice. 2Please help me learn to do the right thing, and I will be honest and fair in my own kingdom. 3I refuse to be corrupt or to take part in anything crooked, 4and I won't be dishonest or deceitful. 5Anyone who spreads gossip will be silenced; no one who is conceited will be my friend. 6I will find trustworthy people to serve as my advisors; only an honest person will serve as an official. 7No one who cheats or lies will have a position in my royal court. 8Each morning I will silence any lawbreakers I find in the countryside or in the city of the LORD.
