|<< Psalm 101 >>|
GOD'S WORD ® Translation
[A psalm by David.] I will sing about mercy and justice. O LORD, I will make music to praise you.
2I want to understand the path to integrity. When will you come to me? I will live in my own home with integrity.
3I will not put anything wicked in front of my eyes. I hate what unfaithful people do. I want no part of it.
4I will keep far away from devious minds. I will have nothing to do with evil.
5I will destroy anyone who secretly slanders his neighbor. I will not tolerate anyone with a conceited look or arrogant heart.
6My eyes will be watching the faithful people in the land so that they may live with me. The person who lives with integrity will serve me.
7The one who does deceitful things will not stay in my home. The one who tells lies will not remain in my presence.
8Every morning I will destroy all the wicked people in the land to rid the LORD's city of all troublemakers.
