MY SONG shall be of mercy and judgement : unto thee, O Lord, will I sing.
2 O let me have understanding : in the way of godliness.
3 When wilt thou come unto me : I will walk in my house with a perfect heart.
4 I will take no wicked thing in hand; I hate the sins of unfaithfulness : there shall no such cleave unto me.
5 A froward heart shall depart from me : I will not know a wicked person.
6 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour : him will I destroy.
7 Whoso hath also a proud look and high stomach : I will not suffer him.
8 Mine eyes look upon such as are faithful in the land : that they may dwell with me.
9 Whoso leadeth a godly life : he shall be my servant.
10 There shall no deceitful person dwell in my house : he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
11 I shall soon destroy all the ungodly that are in the land : that I may root out all wicked doers from the city of the Lord.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
