Psalm 101. Misericordiam et judicium.
MY song shall be of mercy and judgment; * unto thee, O LORD,
will I sing.
2 O let me have understanding * in the way of godliness!
3 When wilt thou come unto me? * I will walk in my house with
a perfect heart.
4 I will take no wicked thing in hand; I hate the sins of unfaithfulness;
* there shall no such cleave unto me.
5 A froward heart shall depart from me; * I will not know a wicked
6 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, * him will I destroy.
7 Whoso hath also a haughty look and a proud heart, * I will
not suffer him.
8 Mine eyes look upon such as are faithful in the land, * that
they may dwell with me.
9 Whoso leadeth a godly life, * he shall be my servant.
10 There shall no deceitful person dwell in my house; * he that
telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
11 I shall soon destroy all the ungodly that are in the land;
* that I may root out all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.
