Psalm 101

    Psalm 101

    David sings of mercy and justice—He will forsake the company of evildoers.

    A Psalm of David.

    1 I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O Lord, will I sing.

    2 I will behave myself awisely 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 afroward heart shall depart from me: I will not bknow a wicked person.

    5 Whoso privily aslandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I bsuffer.

    6 Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that awalketh in a bperfect way, he shall serve me.

    7 He that worketh adeceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth blies 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.
