Misericordiam et judicium
1 My song shall be of mercy and judgment;*
unto you, O Lord, will I sing.
2 O let me have understanding*
in the way of godliness.
3 When will you come to me?*
I will walk in my house with integrity of heart.
4 I will set no wicked thing before my eyes;*
I hate the sins of unfaithfulness; no such thing shall cleave to me.
5 A crooked heart shall depart from me;*
I will not know a wicked person.
6 Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor,*
him will I destroy.
7 Whoever has a proud look and an arrogant heart,*
I will not suffer him.
8 My eyes shall look with favor upon the faithful in the land,*
that they may dwell with me.
9 Whoever leads a godly life,*
he shall be my servant.
10 No deceitful person shall dwell in my house;*
the one who tells lies shall not tarry in my sight.
11 I shall soon destroy all the ungodly who are in the land,*
that I may root out all evildoers from the city of the Lord.
