A song of David.
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.* anything shameful Or “an idol.”
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.

*101:3 anything shameful Or “an idol.”
