Psalm 101:6 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Mine eyes - My approbation.

Upon the faithful - The humble, upright followers of God.

That they may dwell with me - Be my confidants and privy counsellors. No irreligious or wicked man, whatever his abilities may be, shall be countenanced or supported by me. I will purify my court from the base, the irreligious, the avaricious, the venal, the profligate, and the wicked.

He that walketh in a perfect way - He that is truly religious.

He shalt serve me - Shall be my prime minister, and the chief officer in my army, and over my finances.
