Psalm 101:1-8, NLT

Psalm 101

A psalm of David.

1I will sing of your love and justice, Lord.

I will praise you with songs.

2I will be careful to live a blameless life—

when will you come to help me?

I will lead a life of integrity

in my own home.

3I will refuse to look at

anything vile and vulgar.

I hate all who deal crookedly;

I will have nothing to do with them.

4I will reject perverse ideas

and stay away from every evil.

5I will not tolerate people who slander their neighbors.

I will not endure conceit and pride.

6I will search for faithful people

to be my companions.

Only those who are above reproach

will be allowed to serve me.

7I will not allow deceivers to serve in my house,

and liars will not stay in my presence.

8My daily task will be to ferret out the wicked

and free the city of the Lord from their grip.
