Psalm 101

A Psalm that has applications to our thoughts about media, as well as so many other things:

Psalm 101
King James Version

1I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.

2I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way1. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

3I will set no wicked2 thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

4A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person3.

5Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.

6Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.

7He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.

8I will early4 destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.
