Misericordiam et judicium. The prophet exhorteth all by his example, to follow mercy and justice.

[1] A psalm for David himself. Mercy and judgment I will sing to thee, O Lord: I will sing, [2] And I will understand in the unspotted way, when thou shalt come to me. I walked in the innocence of my heart, in the midst of my house. [3] I did not set before my eyes any unjust thing: I hated the workers of iniquities. [4] The perverse heart did not cleave to me: and the malignant, that turned aside from me, I would not know. [5] The man that in private detracted his neighbour, him did I persecute. With him that had a proud eye, and an unsatiable heart, I would not eat.

[2] "I will understand": That is, I will apply my mind, I will do my endeavour, to know and to follow the perfect way of thy commandments: not trusting to my own strength, but relying on thy coming to me by thy grace.

[6] My eyes were upon the faithful of the earth, to sit with me: the man that walked in the perfect way, he served me. [7] He that worketh pride shall not dwell in the midst of my house: he that speaketh unjust things did not prosper before my eyes. [8] In the morning I put to death all the wicked of the land: that I might cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of the Lord.
