8  Each morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land, to rid the city of Hashem of all evildoers.

101:8   To cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of the Lord

Psalm 101 is King David’s report to God of his efforts to create a just and righteous society. These involve rooting out evil from the cities, and supporting and bolstering the innocent and simple souls. Yerushalayim is Hashem’s holy city, and David works towards maintaining its sacred character by ensuring justice throughout the city on a daily basis. Similarly, part of the space in the Beit Hamikdash was designated for the Sanhedrin, the High Court, so that within the house of God, a system of justice was always functioning.1 comment
