|The Psalmists Profession of Uprightness|
|A Psalm of David.|
| ||I WILL sing of lovingkindness and justice:|
Unto thee, O Jehovah, will I sing praises.
| ||I will behave 1 myself wisely in a perfect way:|
Oh when wilt thou come unto me?
I will walk within my house with 2 a perfect heart.
| ||I will set no base thing before mine eyes:|
I hate the 3 work of them that turn aside;
It shall not cleave unto me.
| ||A perverse heart shall depart from me:|
I will know no evil 4 thing.
| ||Whoso privily slandereth his neighbor, him will I destroy:|
Him that hath a high look and a proud heart will I not suffer.
| ||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 minister unto me.
| ||He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house:|
He that speaketh falsehood shall not be established before mine eyes.
| ||Morning by morning will I destroy all the wicked of the land;|
To cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of Jehovah.
