A song of David.

101 I will sing about love and justice.
    Lord, I will sing to you.
I will be careful to live a pure life.
    I will live in my house with complete honesty.
    When will you come to me?
I will not even look at anything shameful.[a]
    I hate all wrongdoing.
    I want no part of it!
I will not be involved in anything dishonest.
    I will have nothing to do with evil.
I will stop anyone who secretly
    says bad things about a neighbor.
I will not allow people to be proud
    and think they are better than others.

I will look throughout the land for those who can be trusted.
    Only such people can live with me.
    Only those who live pure lives can be my servants.
I will never let a dishonest person live in my house.
    I will not let liars stay near me.
My goal each day will be to destroy the wicked living in our land.
    I will force all who do evil to leave the city of the Lord.
