I Will Bless the Lord
1 # See Ps. 7:8 Vindicate me, O Lord,
for I have #ver. 11 walked in my integrity,
and I have #See Ps. 11:1trusted in the Lord without wavering.
2 # See Ps. 7:9; 17:3; 139:23 Prove me, O Lord, and try me;
test my heart and #Ps. 7:9my mind.#26:2 Hebrew test my kidneys and my heart
3For your #[Ps. 25:10] steadfast love is before my eyes,
and I #2 Kgs. 20:3; [Ps. 86:11]walk in your #[Ps. 25:10] faithfulness.
4I do not #See Ps. 1:1 sit with men of #Job 11:11falsehood,
nor do I consort with hypocrites.
5I #Ps. 31:6; 139:21, 22hate the assembly of evildoers,
and I will not sit with the wicked.
6I #Ps. 73:13; [Ex. 30:19, 20; Deut. 21:6]wash my hands in innocence
and go around your altar, O Lord,
7proclaiming thanksgiving aloud,
and telling all your #See Ps. 9:1wondrous deeds.
8O Lord, I #[Ps. 27:4]love the habitation of your house
and the place where your glory dwells.
9 # [Ps. 28:3] Do not sweep my soul away with sinners,
nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
10in whose hands are evil devices,
and whose right hands are full of #Ex. 23:8; Deut. 16:19bribes.
11But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12My foot stands on #See Ps. 27:11 level ground;
in #Ps. 22:25the great assembly I will bless the Lord.
