Psalm 101. Misericordiam et judicium.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Ninteenth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. I will sing of mercy and justice; *
    to you, O Lord, will I sing praises.
  2. I will strive to follow a blameless course; oh, when will you come to me? *
    I will walk with sincerity of heart within my house.
  3. I will set no worthless thing before my eyes; *
    I hate the doers of evil deeds; they shall not remain with me.
  4. A crooked heart shall be far from me; *
    I will not know evil.
  5. Those who in secret slander their neighbors I will destroy; *
    those who have a haughty look and a proud heart I cannot abide.
  6. My eyes are upon the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me, *
    and only those who lead a blameless life shall be my servants.
  7. Those who act deceitfully shall not dwell in my house, *
    and those who tell lies shall not continue in my sight.
  8. I will soon destroy all the wicked in the land, *
    that I may root out all evildoers from the city of the Lord.
