1 I will sing about gracious love and justice; LORD, I will sing praise to you. 2 I will pay attention to living a life of integrity when will I attain it? I will live with integrity of heart in my house. 3 I will not even think about doing anything lawless; I hate to do evil deeds; I will have none of it. 4 I will not allow anyone with a perverted mind in my presence; I will not be involved with anything evil.
5 I will destroy the one who secretly slanders a friend. I will not allow the proud and haughty to prevail. 6 My eyes are looking at the faithful of the land, so they may live with me; The one who lives a life of integrity will serve me. 7 A deceitful person will not sit in my house; A liar will not remain in my presence. 8 Every morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land, eliminating everyone who practices iniquity from the LORD's city. A prayer by the afflicted man who is overwhelmed and talks about his troubles with the LORD.
