Consider the Way of the Blameless
Of David. A Psalm.
I will sing of lovingkindness and justice,
To You, O Yahweh, I will sing praises. 2
I will consider the way of the blameless.
When will You come to me?
I will walk within my house in the integrity of my heart. 3
I will set no vile thing before my eyes;
I hate the work of those who fall away;
It shall not cling to me. 4
A crooked heart shall depart from me;
I will know no evil. 5
Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, him I will destroy;
Whoever has a haughty look and an arrogant heart, I will not endure.
My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may abide with me;
He who walks in the way of the blameless is the one who will minister to me. 7
He who practices deceit shall not dwell within my house;
He who speaks lies shall not be established before my eyes. 8
Every morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land,
To cut off from the city of Yahweh all the workers of iniquity.
