A Psalme of Dauid.
1
Ivdge me, O Lorde, for I haue walked in mine innocency: my trust hath bene also in the Lord: therefore shall I not slide.
2
Proue me, O Lorde, and trie mee: examine my reines, and mine heart.
3
For thy louing kindnesse is before mine eyes: therefore haue I walked in thy trueth.
4
I haue not hanted with vaine persons, neither kept companie with the dissemblers.
5
I haue hated the assemblie of the euill, and haue not companied with the wicked.
6
I will wash mine handes in innocencie, O Lord, and compasse thine altar,
7
That I may declare with the voyce of thankesgiuing, and set foorth all thy wonderous woorkes.
8
O Lorde, I haue loued the habitation of thine house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
9
Gather not my soule with the sinners, nor my life with the bloodie men:
10
In whose handes is wickednes, and their right hand is full of bribes.
11
But I will walke in mine innocencie: redeeme me therefore, and be mercifull vnto me.
12
My foote standeth in vprightnesse: I will praise thee, O Lord, in the Congregations.
