1 David. PSALMUS. Misericordiam et iudicium cantabo; tibi, Domine, psallam.
2 Intellegam in via immaculata; quando venies ad me? Perambulabo in innocentia cordis mei, in medio domus meae.
3 Non proponam ante oculos meos rem iniustam; facientem praevaricationes odio habebo, non adhaerebit mihi.
4 Cor pravum recedet a me, malignum non cognoscam.
5 Detrahentem secreto proximo suo, hunc cessare faciam; superbum oculo et inflatum corde, hunc non sustinebo.
6 Oculi mei ad fideles terrae, ut sedeant mecum; qui ambulat in via immaculata, hic mihi ministrabit.
7 Non habitabit in medio domus meae, qui facit superbiam; qui loquitur iniqua, non stabit in conspectu oculorum meorum.
8 In matutino cessare faciam omnes peccatores terrae, ut disperdam de civitate Domini omnes operantes iniquitatem.
King James Version
A Psalm of David.
1 I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.
2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
4 A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person.
5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.
6 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 serve me.
7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.
