This is a minor adaptation of the WEB
to include nuanced meanings of particular ancient words for placenames,
God and others of special interest. In general square brackets: are
used to indicated words not found in the original text. It also indicates

of questionable authenticity.
A Psalm by David. 1I will sing of loving kindness and justice. To you, TheIAM, I will sing praises. 2I will be careful to live a blameless life. When will you come to me? I will walk within my house with a blameless heart. 3I will set no vile thing before my eyes. I hate the deeds of faithless men. They will not cling to me. 4A perverse heart will be far from me. I will have nothing to do with evil. 5I will silence whoever secretly slanders his neighbor. I won't tolerate one who is haughty and conceited. 6My eyes will be on the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me. He who walks in a perfect way, he will serve me. 7He who practices deceit won't dwell within my house. He who speaks falsehood won't be established before my eyes. 8Morning by morning, I will destroy all the wicked of the land; to cut off all the workers of iniquity from TheIAM's city.
