1 A Psalm of David. I will sing of loving-kindness and justice: To you, O Yahweh, I will sing praises.
2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way: Oh when will you come to me? I will walk inside 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 will not stick to me.
4 A perverse heart will depart from me: I will know no evil thing.
5 Whoever secretly slanders his fellow man, I will destroy him: I will not allow him who has a high look and a proud heart.
6 My eyes will be on the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: He who walks in a perfect way, he will minister to me.
7 He who works deceit will not dwell inside my house: He who speaks falsehood will 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 Yahweh.
