(Relating to the true David, and His coming rule to give "rest" to the earth. The king's vow to rule in righteousness. Cp. 2 Sam. 23:3-5.)
1 I will sing of loving-kindness (or grace) and judgment:
To You, O LORD, will I sing.
2 I will behave myself wisely in a blameless way.
O when will You come to me? (I.e. as king shall You come)
I will walk within my house with a blameless heart.
3 I will set no thing of Beliel before my eyes:
I have always hated the work (i.e. the doings, or business) of them that turn aside;
It shall not cleave to me.
4 A perverse (from what is right) heart shall depart from me:
I will not know a wicked person.
5 Whoso privily slanders his neighbor, him will I destroy:
Him that has a high look and broad of heart (i.e. large and blatant. Cp. Prov. 21:4; 28:25) will not I suffer.
6 My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land (i.e. Palestine, as in Ps. 100:1), that they may dwell with me:
He that walks in a blameless way, he shall serve me.
7 He that works deceit shall not dwell within My house:
He that tells lies shall not tarry in My sight.
8 I will morning by morning (i.e. the judgments of a day dealt with within the day. No prisoners needed. Land kept clean) destroy all the wicked of the land;
That I may cut off all workers of iniquity from the city of the LORD. (I.e. Zion)
