Psalms 101:7

He that works deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that tells lies shall not tarry in my sight.
Read Chapter 101

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
10. "The proud man hath not dwelt in the midst of my house" (ver. 7). Understand this of the heart. The proud did not dwell in my heart: no such dwelt in my heart: for he hurried away from me. None but the meek and peaceful dwelt in my heart; the proud dwelt not there, for the unrighteous one dwelleth not in the heart of the righteous. Let the righteous be distant from thee, I know not how many miles and stations: ye dwell together, if ye have one heart. "The proud doer hath not dwelt in the midst of my house: he that speaketh unjust things hath not directed in the sight of my eyes." This is the spotless way, where we understand when the Lord cometh unto us. ...

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
