The Psalmist’s Profession of Uprightness.

1 A Psalm of David.
I will (A)sing of lovingkindness and (a)justice,
To You, O Lord, I will sing praises.
I will (b)(B)give heed to the (c)blameless way.
When will You come to me?
I will walk within my house in the (d)(C)integrity of my heart.
I will set no (D)worthless thing before my eyes;
I hate the (e)work of those who (E)fall away;
It shall not fasten its grip on me.
A (F)perverse heart shall depart from me;
I will know no evil.
Whoever secretly (G)slanders his neighbor, him I will (f)destroy;
No one who has a (H)haughty look and an arrogant heart will I endure.
My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me;
He who walks in a (g)(I)blameless way is the one who will minister to me.
He who (J)practices deceit shall not dwell within my house;
He who speaks falsehood (K)shall not (h)maintain his position before me.
(L)Every morning I will (i)(M)destroy all the wicked of the land,
So as to (N)cut off from the (O)city of the Lord all those who do iniquity.
