6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests;
Samuel was one of those who prayed to him. 10
They 11 prayed to the Lord and he answered them.
7 He spoke to them from a pillar of cloud; 12
they obeyed his regulations and the ordinance he gave them.
8 O Lord our God, you answered them.
They found you to be a forgiving God,
but also one who punished their sinful deeds. 13
9 Praise 14 the Lord our God!
Worship on his holy hill,
for the Lord our God is holy!

2 I will walk in 1 the way of integrity.
When will you come to me?
I will conduct my business with integrity in the midst of my palace. 2

I hate doing evil; 4
I will have no part of it. 5
4 I will have nothing to do with a perverse person; 6
I will not permit 7 evil.
5 I will destroy anyone who slanders his neighbor in secret.
I will not tolerate anyone who has a cocky demeanor and an arrogant attitude. 8

and allow them to live with me. 10
Those who walk in the way of integrity will attend me. 11

Liars will not be welcome in my presence. 13
8 Each morning I will destroy all the wicked people in the land,
and remove all evildoers from the city of the Lord.
