Wednesday of the Fourth Week of Lent – Morning Prayer

Psalm 101

1 I will sing of mercy and justice;*
to you, O LORD, will I sing praises.

2 I will strive to follow a blameless course;
oh, when will you come to me?*
I will walk with sincerity of heart within my house.

3 I will set no worthless thing before my eyes;*
I hate the doers of evil deeds;
they shall not remain with me.

4 A crooked heart shall be far from me;*
I will not know evil.

5 Those who in secret slander their neighbors I will destroy;*
those who have a haughty look and a proud heart I cannot abide.

6 My eyes are upon the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me,*
and only those who lead a blameless life shall be my servants.

7 Those who act deceitfully shall not dwell in my house,*
and those who tell lies shall not continue in my sight.

8 I will soon destroy all the wicked in the land,*
that I may root out all evildoers from the city of the LORD.
