(Of David’s; a psalm.)
101 Friendliness and justice I sing;
to you, Jehovah, I make music.
2 I will consider a faultless course;
when will you come to me?
I will walk with a steady heart
within my house.
3 I will not lay a base proposition
under my eyes.
Doing unprincipled things I hate,
it shall not be my habit.
4 A crooked heart I will eschew,
will have no knowledge of evil.
5 One who covertly defames another
I will annihilate.
A man of lofty eyes and domineering heart
I will not stand.
6 I will have my eyes out for earth’s reliable men
to live with me.
One who walks a faultless course,
he shall serve me.
7 One who practices fraud shall not have
a seat inside my house.
A liar shall not hold
a footing under my eyes.
8 Morning by morning I will annihilate
all earth’s wrong-doers,
Exterminating from Jehovah’s city
all who commit villainy.
