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.
