"I hate all crooked dealings; I will have nothing to do with them. I will reject perverse ideas and stay away from every evil. I will not tolerate people who slander their neighbors. I will not endure conceit and pride. I will keep a protective eye on the godly so they may dwell with me in safety. Only those who are above reproach will be allowed to serve me."

Psalm 101:3-6. The Bible.
