Psalm 101: 1,2 – “I will sing of mercy and justice; to You, O LORD, I will sing praises. I will behave wisely in a perfect way. Oh, when will You come to me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.” Mercy and justice may be rephrased as :gracious justice.” There is a harshness to the tone of the psalm that might emphasize the justice element of this phrasing; but underlying the justice is God’s mercy or “loyal love.” Behave wisely means to act with skill. The strong form of the word indicates intense determination, not just a passing desire.
