PSALM 101

      Ps 101:1-8. In this Psalm the profession of the principles of his domestic and political government testifies, as well as actions in accordance with it, David's appreciation of God's mercy to him, and His judgment on his enemies: and thus he sings or celebrates God's dealings.

      2. He avows his sincere purpose, by God's aid, to act uprightly (Ge 17:1; Ps 18:30).

      3. set . . . eyes--as an example to be approved and followed.
      no wicked thing--literally, "word," plan or purpose of Belial (Ps 41:8).
      work of . . . aside--apostates.
      not cleave to me--I will not be implicated in it (compare Ps 1:1-3).

      4. A froward heart--or, "perverse heart" (Ps 18:26). Such a temper I will not indulge, nor even know evil or wickedness.

      5, 6. The slanderers and haughty persons, so mischievous in society, I will disown; but--

      6. Mine eyes . . . upon--or, I will select reliable and honest men for my servants.

      7. not dwell--literally, "not sit," or tarry, or be established.

      8. will early--or, "diligently."
      city of the Lord--or, "holy place" (Ps 48:2), where wicked men shall not be tolerated.
