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