1 Of mercy and of judgment, O Lord, I'll sing to thee. In wisdom and uprightness Shall my behavior be.
2 O when wilt thou, Jehovah, To me in kindness come? With heart sincere and perfect I'll walk within my home.
3 No work of sin I'll suffer Before my eyes to be: I hate the work of sinners, It shall not cleave to me.
4 The man whose heart is froward, Shall from my presence go. None who in sin takes pleasure Will I consent to know.
5 The tongue of secret slander Shall from my sight depart; High looks I will not suffer, Nor yet the haughty heart.
6 My eyes shall seek the faithful, That they may dwell with me; The man who walks uprightly, He shall my servant be.
7 No man of works deceitful Within my house shall dwell; Nor in my sight shall tarry The man who lies doth tell.
8 I'll everywhere on sinners Inflict a swift reward; To free from evil-doers The city of the Lord.
1 I mercy will and judgment sing, Lord, I will sing to thee. With wisdom in a perfect way Shall my behavior be.
2 O when, in kindness unto me, Wilt thou be pleased to come.; I with a perfect heart will walk Within my house at home.
3 I will endure no wicked thing Before mine eyes to be; I hate their work that turn aside, It shall not cleave to me.
4 A stubborn and a forward heart Depart quite from me shall; A person giv'n to wickedness I will not know at all.
5 I'll cut him off that slandereth His neighbor privily: The haughty heart I will not bear, Nor him whose looks are high.
6 Upon the faithful of the land Mine eyes shall be, that they May dwell with me; he shall me serve Who walks in perfect way.
7 Who of deceit a worker is In my house shall not dwell; Nor in my presence shall remain The man that lies doth tell.
8 Yea, all the wicked of the land I early will destroy; And from God's city cut them off' That work iniquity.
