THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 101 ©
David sets himself and his court for an example, testifying his readiness of advancing and honoring the good, and of punishing and banishing the wicked.
A Psalm of David.
I WILL sing of 1mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.
I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O 2when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk 3within my house with a perfect heart.
I will set no 4wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them 5that turn aside; 6it shall not cleave to me.
7A froward heart shall depart from me: I 8will not know 9a wicked person.
Whoso privily 10slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a 11proud heart will not I suffer.
Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell 12with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, 13he shall serve me.
He that worketh deceit shall not dwell 14within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
I will 15early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.
