PSALM 101[B] Norm of Life for Rulers 101 1A psalm of David. I I sing of mercy and justice; to you, LORD, I sing praise. 2I study the the way of integrity; when will you come to me? I act with integrity of heart within my household.[C] 3I do not allow into my presence anything base. I hate wrongdoing; I will have no part of it. 4May the devious heart keep far from me; the wicked I will not acknowledge. 5Whoever slanders a neighbor in secret I will reduce to silence. Haughty eyes and arrogant hearts I cannot endure. II 6I look to the faithful of the land[D] to sit at my side. Whoever follows the way of integrity is the one to enter my service. 7No one who practices deceit can remain within my house. No one who speaks falsely can last in my presence. 8[E]Morning after morning I clear all the wicked from the land, to rid the city of the LORD of all doers of evil.
