The Psalmist's Profession of Uprightness.
A Psalm of David.
1 I will sing R3129 of lovingkindness and justice, F1068
To You, O LORD, I will sing praises.
2 I will give R3130 F1069 heed to the blameless F1070 way.
When will You come to me?
I will walk within my house in the integrity R3131 F1071 of my heart.
3 I will set no worthless R3132 thing before my eyes;
I hate the work F1072 of those who fall R3133 away;
It shall not fasten its grip on me.
4 A perverse R3134 heart shall depart from me;
I will know no evil.
5 Whoever secretly slanders R3135 his neighbor, him I will destroy; F1073
No one who has a haughty R3136 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 R3137 F1074 way is the one who will minister to me.
7 He who practices R3138 deceit shall not dwell within my house;
He who speaks falsehood shall R3139 not maintain F1075 his position before me.
8 Every R3140 morning I will destroy R3141 F1076 all the wicked of the land,
So as to cut R3142 off from the city R3143 of the LORD all those who do iniquity.
