My song shall be of mercy and judgement;
unto thee, O Lord, will I sing.
O let me have understanding in the way of godliness! When wilt thou come unto me? I will walk in my house with a perfect heart.
I will take no wicked thing in hand.
I hate the sins of unfaithfulness;
there shall no such cleave unto me.
A froward heart shall depart from me;
I will not know a wicked person.
Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I destroy.
Whoso hath also a proud look and high stomach, I will not suffer him.
Mine eyes look upon such as are faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me.
Whoso leadeth a godly life, he shall be my servant.
There shall no deceitful person dwell in my house;
he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
I shall soon destroy all the ungodly that are in the land, that I may root out all wicked doers from the city of the Lord.
