1 A Psalme of Dauid. I will sing of Mercie and Iudgement: vnto thee, O Lord, wil I sing.
2 I will behaue my selfe wisely in a perfect way, O when wilt thou come vnto me? I will walke within my house with a perfect heart.
3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the worke of them that turne aside, it shal not cleaue to me.
4 A froward heart shall depart from me, I will not knowe a wicked person.
5 Whoso priuily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high looke, and a proud heart, will not I suffer.
6 Mine eyes shall be vpon the faithfull of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serue me.
7 He that worketh deceit, shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarie in my sight.
8 I will earely destroy all the wicked of the land: that I may cut off all wicked doers from the citie of the Lord.
