Of David. A psalm.1I will sing of your love and justice; to you, Lord, I will sing praise.2I will be careful to lead a blameless life— when will you come to me? I will conduct the affairs of my house with a blameless heart.3I will not look with approval on anything that is vile. I hate what faithless people do; I will have no part in it.4The perverse of heart shall be far from me; I will have nothing to do with what is evil. 5Whoever slanders their neighbor in secret, I will put to silence;whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart, I will not tolerate. 6My eyes will be on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me;the one whose walk is blameless will minister to me. 7No one who practices deceit will dwell in my house;no one who speaks falsely will stand in my presence. 8Every morning I will put to silence all the wicked in the land;I will cut off every evildoer from the city of the Lord.
