Psalm 101
New King James Version Par ▾ 

Promised Faithfulness to the Lord

A Psalm of David.

1I will sing of mercy and justice;
To You, O Lord, I will sing praises.

2I will behave wisely in a [a]perfect way.
Oh, when will You come to me?
I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

3I will set nothing [b]wicked before my eyes;
I hate the work of those who fall away;
It shall not cling to me.
4A perverse heart shall depart from me;
I will not know wickedness.

5Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor,
Him I will destroy;
The one who has a haughty look and a proud heart,
Him I will not endure.

6My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land,
That they may dwell with me;
He who walks in a [c]perfect way,
He shall serve me.
7He who works deceit shall not dwell within my house;
He who tells lies shall not [d]continue in my presence.
8Early I will destroy all the wicked of the land,
That I may cut off all the evildoers from the city of the Lord.
