A Vow of Integrity

1 A Davidic psalm.
I will sing of faithful love and justice;
I will sing praise to You, Lord.(A)
I will pay attention to the way of integrity.
When will You come to me?
I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.(B)
I will not set anything worthless before my eyes.
I hate the practice of transgression;
it will not cling to me.(C)
A devious heart will be far from me;
I will not be involved with(a) evil.(D)
I will destroy anyone
who secretly slanders his neighbor;(E)
I cannot tolerate anyone
with haughty eyes or an arrogant heart.(F)
My eyes favor the faithful of the land
so that they may sit down with me.
The one who follows the way of integrity
may serve me.(G)
No one who acts deceitfully
will live in my palace;
no one who tells lies
will remain in my presence.(b)(H)
Every morning I will destroy
all the wicked of the land,
eliminating all evildoers from the Lord’s city.(I)
