Things to keep away from yourself

Psalms Bible Background

08.14.2017 – Old Testament: Psa 101.3–4

To read the Bible in a year, read Psalms 99–102 on August 14, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

David had said that he would behave himself wisely in a perfect way and that he would walk within his house with a perfect heart. Then he declared,

I will set nothing wicked before my eyes;
I hate the work of those who fall away;
It shall not cling to me.
A perverse heart shall depart from me;
I will not know wickedness.
(Psalm 101.3–4) 

To behave wisely and to walk with a perfect heart, he would not set anything wicked before his eyes, and a perverse heart he would send away from himself, nor would he know wickedness.

Perhaps someone says that is too much to ask, but who can act in a God-pleasing way without doing those things?


  • Would people be surprised to see how you live at home?
  • What have you purposed to do and not to do in your life?
