Psalm 101 – New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 101

Of David. A psalm.

  1. I will sing of your love and justice; to you, Lord, I will sing praise.
  2. I will be careful to lead a blameless life— when will you come to me? I will conduct the affairs of my house with a blameless heart.
  3. I will not look with approval on anything that is vile. I hate what faithless people do; I will have no part in it.
  4. The perverse of heart shall be far from me; I will have nothing to do with what is evil.
  5. Whoever slanders their neighbor in secret, I will put to silence; whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart, I will not tolerate.
  6. My eyes will be on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me; the one whose walk is blameless will minister to me.
  7. No one who practices deceit will dwell in my house; no one who speaks falsely will stand in my presence.
  8. Every morning I will put to silence all the wicked in the land; I will cut off every evildoer from the city of the Lord.

  2. I will behave myself wisely In a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

  4. A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person.
  5. Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, Him will I cut off: Him that hath an 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 that walketh in a perfect way, He shall serve me.
  7. He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: He that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
