Young's Literal Translation
I set not before mine eyes a worthless thing, The work of those turning aside I have hated, It adhereth not to me.
Psalm 101:3 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes - I will undertake no unjust wars; will enter into no sinful alliances; will not oppress my subjects by excessive taxation, to support extravagance in my court. I will not look favourably on things or words of Belial. What is good for nothing or evil in its operation, what is wicked in its principle, and what would lead me away from righteousness and truth, I will never set before my eyes.
Them that turn aside - I shall particularly abominate the conduct of those who apostatize from the true religion, and those who deny its Divine authority, and who live without having their conduct governed by its influence, such shall never he put in a place of political trust or confidence by me.

"Be very strong; be careful to obey all that is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, without turning aside to the right or to the left.
Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.
But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers. Peace be on Israel.
