101:1 A Psalm of David. I will sing of mercy and justice; unto Thee, O the Lord, will I sing praises.

101:2 I will give heed unto the way of integrity; oh when wilt Thou come unto me? I will walk within my house in the integrity of my heart.

101:3 I will set no base thing before mine eyes; I hate the doing of things crooked; it shall not cleave unto me.

101:4 A perverse heart shall depart from me; I will know no evil thing.

101:5 Whoso slandereth his neighbour in secret, him will I destroy; whoso is haughty of eye and proud of heart, him will I not suffer.

101:6 Mine eyes are upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; he that walketh in a way of integrity, he shall minister unto me.

101:7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house; he that speaketh falsehood shall not be established before mine eyes.

101:8 Morning by morning will I destroy all the wicked of the land; to cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of the Lord.
