1 I'll praise your love and justice, LORD;
I'll praise you cheerfully.
2 I'll strive to lead a blameless life -
when will you come to me?
Within my home the life I lead
will show a blameless heart.
3 My eyes will view no worthless thing;
from sin I will depart.
I hate what faithless people do;
it shall not cling to me.
4 All wicked people I’ll avoid;
from evil I’ll stay free.
5 I’ll put to silence everyone
who slanders secretly;
I will not tolerate the proud
who act so haughtily.
6 My eyes are on the faithful ones,
that they may dwell with me;
Whoever lives a blameless life
will serve me constantly.
7 No one who practises deceit
will dwell within my home;
Nor will the one whose words are false
before me ever come.
8 Each morning I will silence all
who wicked deeds have done;
I’ll cleanse the city of the LORD
of every evil one.
