A Vow of Integrity
A psalm of David.
1I will sing of faithful love and justice;
2I will pay attention to the way of integrity.
When will you come to me?
3I will not let anything worthless guide me.101:3 Lit I will not put a worthless thing in front of my eyes
I hate the practice of transgression;
4A devious heart will be far from me;
5I will destroy anyone
who secretly slanders his neighbor;101:5 Ps 50:20
I cannot tolerate anyone
6My eyes favor the faithful of the land
so that they may sit down with me.
The one who follows the way of integrity
7No one who acts deceitfully
will live in my palace;
the one who tells lies
will not be retained here to guide me.101:7 Lit be established in front of my eyes101:7 Ps 31:18; 52:3; 63:11; Pr 29:12
8Every morning I will destroy
all the wicked of the land,
