Verse 1. I will sing (saith hee) Mercie and Iustices O eternall God, I will sing them to thee.
Verse 2. I will attend vnto the perfect way, vntill that thou commest to me: In the vprightnes of my heart; I will walke in the middest of my house.
Verse 3. I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes. I hate the workes of them that fall away, nothing thereof shall cleaue vnto me.
Verse 4. A froward heart shall depart from mee: I will not know or allow of euill, or of an euill person.
Verse 5. He that priuily woundeth his neighbor with his tongue, I will cut him off And after∣wards in the same verse, passing from words to thoughts and gestures of loftinesse, hee saith: He that hath his eyes lifted vp, and a grosse or high heart, I can at no hand susser or indare him.
Verse 6. Mine cies shall bee vnto the good and faith∣ful people of the land, that they may dwel or sit with me. He that walketh in an vp∣right way shall serue me.
Verse 7. He that shall vse deceit, shall not dwell in my house: he that speaketh a lie, shall not re∣maine before me.
Verse 8. I will cut off (sayth he) betimes all the wic∣ked of the land: that I may root out of the citie of the Lord, the workers of ini∣quitie.
