Psalm 101 New International Version

A Pledge to Live Righteously

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