The Psalmist’s Profession of Uprightness.

A Psalm of David.

1 I will sing of lovingkindness and justice,  To You, O LORD, I will sing praises.
2 I will give heed to the blameless way.  When will You come to me?  I will walk within my house in the integrity of my heart.
3 I will set no worthless thing before my eyes;  I hate the work of those who fall away;  It shall not fasten its grip on me.
4 A perverse heart shall depart from me;  I will know no evil.
5 Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, him I will destroy;  No one who has a haughty look and an arrogant heart will I endure.
6 My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me;  He who walks in a blameless way is the one who will minister to me.
7 He who practices deceit shall not dwell within my house;  He who speaks falsehood shall not maintain his position before me.
8 Every morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land,  So as to cut off from the city of the LORD all those who do iniquity.
