David maketh a vow and profession of godliness.
Psalms 101:1 A psalm for David himself. Mercy and judgment I will sing to thee, O Lord: I will sing, Psalms 101:2 And I will understand in the unspotted way, when thou shalt come to me. I walked in the innocence of my heart, in the midst of my house. Psalms 101:3 I will not set before my eyes any unjust thing: I hated the workers of iniquities. Psalms 101:4 The perverse heart did not cleave to me: and the malignant, that turned aside from me, I would not know. Psalms 101:5 The man that in private detracted his neighbour, him did I persecute. With him that had a proud eye, and an unsatiable heart, I would not eat. Psalms 101:6 My eyes were upon the faithful of the earth, to sit with me: the man that walked in the perfect way, he served me. Psalms 101:7 He that worketh pride shall not dwell in the midst of my house: he that speaketh unjust things did not prosper before my eyes. Psalms 101:8 In the morning I put to death all the wicked of the land: that I might cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of the Lord.
