PSALM 101 The Psalmist’s Profession of Uprightness. A Psalm of David. 101 1I will sing of lovingkindness and [A]justice, To You, O Lord, I will sing praises. 2I will [B]give heed to the [C]blameless way. When will You come to me? I will walk within my house in the [D]integrity of my heart. 3I will set no worthless thing before my eyes; I hate the [E]work of those who fall away; It shall not fasten its grip on me. 4A perverse heart shall depart from me; I will know no evil. 5Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, him I will [F]destroy; No one who has a haughty look and an arrogant heart will I endure. 6My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; He who walks in a [G]blameless way is the one who will minister to me. 7He who practices deceit shall not dwell within my house; He who speaks falsehood shall not [H]maintain his position before me. 8Every morning I will [I]destroy all the wicked of the land, So as to cut off from the city of the Lord all those who do iniquity.
