I hate those who are devoted to worthless idols, but I trust in the LORD.
I will not set anything godless before my eyes. I hate the doing of transgression; it will not cling to me.
A devious heart will be far from me; I will not be involved with evil.
I will destroy anyone who secretly slanders his neighbor; I cannot tolerate anyone with haughty eyes or an arrogant heart.
My eyes [favor] the faithful of the land so that they may sit down with me. The one who follows the way of integrity may serve me.
No one who acts deceitfully will live in my palace; no one who tells lies will remain in my presence.
Every morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land, eliminating all evildoers from the LORD's city.
LORD, don't I hate those who hate You, and detest those who rebel against You?
I hate them with extreme hatred; I consider them my enemies.
How happy is the man who does not follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path of sinners, or join a group of mockers!

I wrote to you in a letter not to associate with sexually immoral people--
by no means referring to this world's immoral people, or to the greedy and swindlers, or to idolaters; otherwise you would have to leave the world.
But now I am writing you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother who is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a reviler, a drunkard or a swindler. Do not even eat with such a person.
