David makes a vow and profession of godliness.

A Psalm by David.

101:1 I will sing of loving kindness and justice.
To you, Yahweh, I will sing praises.

101:2 I will be careful to live a blameless life.
When will you come to me?
I will walk within my house with a blameless heart.

101:3 I will set no vile thing before my eyes.
I hate the deeds of faithless men.
They will not cling to me.

101:4 A perverse heart will be far from me.
I will have nothing to do with evil.

101:5 I will silence whoever secretly slanders his neighbor.
I won’t tolerate one who is haughty and conceited.

101:6 My eyes will be on the faithful of the land,
that they may dwell with me.
He who walks in a perfect way,
he will serve me.

101:7 He who practices deceit won’t dwell within my house.
He who speaks falsehood won’t be established before my eyes.

101:8 Morning by morning, I will destroy all the wicked of the land;
to cut off all the workers of iniquity from Yahweh’s city.
