A Psalm of David.
1Judge me, O Lord, for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the Lord without wavering. 2Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my reins and my heart. 3For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes; and I have walked in thy truth. 4I have not sat with vain persons; neither will I go in with dissemblers. 5I hate the congregation of evil-doers, and will not sit with the wicked. 6I will wash mine hands in innocency; so will I compass thine altar, O Lord: 7That I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard, and tell of all thy wondrous works. 8Lord, I love 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 is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes. 11But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me. 12My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the Lord.
