Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 101:3

_ _ set ... eyes — as an example to be approved and followed.

_ _ no wicked thing — literally, “word,” plan or purpose of Belial (Psalms 41:8).

_ _ work of ... aside — apostates.

_ _ not cleave to me — I will not be implicated in it (compare Psalms 1:1-3).
