Norm of Life for Rulers

1A psalm of David.

I

I sing of love and justice; to you, LORD, I sing praise. 2I follow the way of integrity; c Ps 26, 11 . when will you come to me? I act with integrity of heart within my royal court. d 1 Kgs 9, 4; Is 33, 15 . * 3I do not allow into my presence anyone who speaks perversely. Whoever acts shamefully I hate; no such person can be my friend. e Prv 11, 20 . 4I shun the devious of heart; the wicked I do not tolerate. 5Whoever slanders another in secret I reduce to silence. f Prv 17, 20; 30, 10 . Haughty eyes and arrogant hearts g Prv 21, 4 . I cannot endure.

II

6I look to the faithful of the land;* they alone can be my companions. Those who follow the way of integrity, h Ps 26, 11; Prv 20, 7 . they alone can enter my service. 7No one who practices deceit can hold a post in my court. No one who speaks falsely can be among my advisors. i Ps 5, 5; Prv 25, 5 . 8Each morning* I clear the wicked from the land,* and rid the LORD's city of all evildoers.
