Tehillim - Psalms 101


1A Psalm of David.

I will sing of mercy and justice;Unto Thee, O Lord, will I sing praises.

2I 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.
3I will set no base thing before mine eyes;I hate the doing of things crooked; it shall not cleave unto me.
4A perverse heart shall depart from me;I will know no evil thing.
5Whoso slandereth his neighbour in secret, him will I destroy;Whoso is haughty of eye and proud of heart, him will I not suffer.
6Mine 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.
7He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house;He that speaketh falsehood shall not be established before mine eyes.
8Morning 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.
