Psalm 101 Revised Standard Version

A Pledge to Live Righteously

101 1  A Psalm of David. I will sing of loyalty and of justice; to thee, O Lord, I will sing. 2  I will give heed to the way that is blameless. Oh when wilt thou come to me? I will walk with integrity of heart within my house; 3  I will not set before my eyes anything that is base. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cleave to me. 4  Perverseness of heart shall be far from me; I will know nothing of evil. 5  Him who slanders his neighbor secretly I will destroy. The man of haughty looks and arrogant heart I will not endure. 6  I will look with favor on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me; he who walks in the way that is blameless shall minister to me. 7  No man who practices deceit shall dwell in my house; no man who utters lies shall continue in my presence. 8  Morning by morning I will destroy all the wicked in the land, cutting off all the evildoers from the city of the Lord.
