1
{[A Psalm] of David.}
Judge me, O Jehovah, for I have walked in mine integrity, and I have confided in Jehovah: I shall not slip.
2
Prove me, Jehovah, and test me;
try my reins and my heart:
3
For thy loving-kindness is before mine eyes, and I have walked in thy truth.
4
I have not sat with vain persons, neither have I gone in with dissemblers;
5
I have hated the congregation of evil-doers, and I have not sat with the wicked.
6
I will wash my hands in innocency, and will encompass thine altar, O Jehovah,
7
That I may cause the voice of thanksgiving to be heard, and declare all thy marvellous works.
8
Jehovah, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thy glory dwelleth.
9
Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with men of blood;
10
In whose hands are evil devices, and their right hand is full of bribes.
11
But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity.
Redeem me, and be gracious unto me.
12
My foot standeth in an even place;
in the congregations will I bless Jehovah.
