It was written by David. It provides warnings for the wicked and explains the benefits of the righteous.  It reads, "I will sing of your love and justice; to you, LORD, I will sing praise. I will be careful to lead a blameless life-when will you come to me? I will conduct the affairs of my house with a blameless heart. I will not look with approval on anything that is vile. I hate what faithless people do; I will have no part in it. The perverse of heart shall be far from me; I will have nothing to do with way is evil. Whoever slanders their neighbor in secret, I will put to silence; whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart, I will not tolerate. My eyes will be on the faithful in the land, that they will dwell with me: the one whose heart is blameless will minister to me. No one who practices deceit will dwell in my house;no one who speaks falsely will stand in my presence. Every morning I will put to silence all the wicked in the land; I will cut off every evildoer from the city of the LORD."
