(English translation got from website: https://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo )

  1. Of David, a song. I shall sing of kindness and judgment; to You, O Lord, I shall sing.
  2. I shall concern myself with the way of integrity. When will it come to me? I shall walk with the innocence of my heart within my house.
  3. I do not place before my eyes any base thing; I hate doing wayward deeds; it does not cling to me.
  4. A perverse heart turns away from me; I know no evil.
  5. He who slanders his neighbor in secret, I cut him down; one whose eyes are raised up high and his heart is expansive, I cannot tolerate him.
  6. My eyes are upon the faithful of the land to dwell with me; he who goes on the way of the innocent, he will serve me.
  7. He will not dwell within my house; he who practices deceit, who speaks lies, will not be established before my eyes.
  8. Betimes I cut down all the wicked of the earth; to cut down from the city of the Lord all workers of violence.
