Psalm 101 Tuesday Morning 4
Your love and justice I will sing; * to you, Yahweh, I will chant.
I will describe your complete dominion. * When will you come to me?
I have walked with a blameless heart * within my palace.
I have never set before my eyes * any worthless object.
The making of images * I have so detested, it never clung to me.
The perverse heart turned away from me; * the evil man I did not befriend.
Whoever secretly slandered his neighbor, * him I reduced to silence.
A man of haughty looks and proud heart, * I finished off.
My eyes were upon my faithful countrymen, * to dwell with me.
Only the man of blameless conduct * ministered to me.
There never dwelt within my palace an artist of deceit. * A speaker of lies never lingered before my eyes.
Like cattle I destroyed * all the wicked in the land,
cutting off from the city of Yahweh * the evildoers one and all.
