Psalm 101:7, 8 –  “He who practices deceit shall not dwell within my house; he who speaks falsehood shall not maintain his position before me.  Every morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land, so as to cut off from the city of the LORD all those who do iniquity.”  –  In the new covenant, this sort of daily cleansing must begin with ourselves, and from the depths of our hearts.  Compare these thoughts with “Remove the wicked man from yourselves” in 1 Corinthians 5:13 above.
