1 I will sing of loving kindness and justice. To thee, O LORD, I will sing praises. 2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when will thou come to me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. 3 I will set no base thing before my eyes. I hate the work of those who turn aside. It shall not cleave to me. 4 A perverse heart shall depart from me. I will know no evil thing.
5 He who slanders his neighbor secretly, him I will destroy. He who has a high look and a proud heart I will not endure. 6 My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me. He who walks in a perfect way, he shall minister to me. 7 He who works deceit shall not dwell within my house. He who speaks falsehood shall not be established before my eyes. 8 Morning by morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land, to cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of LORD.
