1I will sing of covenant faithfulness and justice. To you, O Yahweh, I will make music.
2I will carefully ponder the road that is blameless. When will you come to me? I will walk about within my house with a heart of integrity.
3I will not place an object of Belial before my eyes— I hate the deeds of faithless men— it will not cling to me.
4A twisted heart will depart from me. I will not know evil.
5Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, I will destroy. I will not endure one who has proud eyes and an arrogant heart.
6My eyes are upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me. He who walks on the road of blamelessness will himself minister to me.
7He who practices deceit will not dwell inside my house. He who speaks lies will not continue before my eyes.
8Every morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land, to cut off all the workers of wickedness from the city of Yahweh.
