Psalm 100(101, NIV)

Of David. A psalm.

I will sing of your love and justice;    to you, Lord, I will sing praise.I will be careful to lead a blameless life—    when will you come to me?

I will conduct the affairs of my house    with a blameless heart.I will not look with approval    on anything that is vile.

I hate what faithless people do;    I will have no part in it.The perverse of heart shall be far from me;    I will have nothing to do with what is evil.

Whoever slanders their neighbor in secret,    I will put to silence;whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart,    I will not tolerate.

My eyes will be on the faithful in the land,    that they may dwell with me;the one whose walk is blameless    will minister to me.

No one who practices deceit    will dwell in my house;no one who speaks falsely    will stand in my presence.

Every morning I will put to silence    all the wicked in the land;I will cut off every evildoer    from the city of the Lord.
