A Psalm of Dawid.
1 I will sing of mercy and judgment; unto You, O יהוה, will I sing.
2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt You come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes; I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
4 A perverse heart shall depart from me; I will not know a wicked person.
5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off; him who hath a high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.
6 Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; he who walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.
7 He who worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house; he who telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of יהוה.
