Psalms 101

Psalm 1011

A psalm of David.

101:1 I will sing about loyalty and justice!

To you, O Lord, I will sing praises!

101:2 I will walk in2 the way of integrity.

When will you come to me?

I will conduct my business with integrity in the midst of my palace.3

101:3 I will not even consider doing what is dishonest.4

I hate doing evil;5

I will have no part of it.6

101:4 I will have nothing to do with a perverse person;7

I will not permit8 evil.

101:5 I will destroy anyone who slanders his neighbor in secret.

I will not tolerate anyone who has a cocky demeanor and an arrogant attitude.9

101:6 I will favor the honest people of the land,10

and allow them to live with me.11

Those who walk in the way of integrity will attend me.12

101:7 Deceitful people will not live in my palace.13

Liars will not be welcome in my presence.14

101:8 Each morning I will destroy all the wicked people in the land,

and remove all evildoers from the city of the Lord.
