1 I will sing mercy and judgment: unto thee,
O Lord, will I sing.
2 I will do wisely in the perfect way, till thou
comest to me, I will walk in the uprightness
of mine heart in the midst of my house.
3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes:
I hate the work of them that fall away: it
shall not cleave unto me.
4 A froward heart shall depart from me; I will
know none evil.
5 Him that privily slandereth his neighbor, will I
destroy: him that hath a proud look and high heart,
I cannot suffer.
6 Mine eyes shall be unto the faithful of the land,
that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a
perfect way, he shall serve me.
7 There shall no deceitful person dwell within
my house: he that telleth lies, shall not remain in
8 Betimes will I destroy all the wicked of the
land that I may cut off all the workers of iniquity
from the City of the Lord.
