1650 Scottish Psalter
Robert Wainwright, 1748-1782
1 I mercy will and judgment sing, Lord, I will sing to thee. 2 With wisdom in a perfect way shall my behavior be. O when, in kindness unto me, wilt thou be pleased to come? I with a perfect heart will walk within my house at home. 3 I will endure no wicked thing before mine eyes to be: I hate their work that turn aside, it shall not cleave to me. 4 A stubborn and a froward heart depart quite from me shall; A person giv'n to wickedness I will not know at all. 5 I'll cut him off that slandereth his neighbor privily: The haughty heart I will not bear, nor him that looketh high. 6 Upon the faithful of the land mine eyes shall be, that they May dwell with me: he shall me serve that walks in perfect way. 7 Who of deceit a worker is in my house shall not dwell; And in my presence shall he not remain that lies doth tell. 8 Yea, all the wicked of the land early destroy will I; All from God's city to cut off that work iniquity.
