A Psalm of David.
1
Judge me, O LORD;
for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD;
therefore I shall not slide.
2
Examine me, O LORD, and prove me;
try my reins and my heart.
3
For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.
4
I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.
5
I have hated the congregation of evildoers;
and will not sit with the wicked.
6
I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:
7
That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
8
LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
9
Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:
10
In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.
11
But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
12
My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.
