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.
