A Psalm of David.
A. 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.
B. 4 I have not sat with vain persons,
neither will I go in with dissemblers.
5 I have hated the congregation of evil doers;
and will not sit with the wicked.
C. 6 I will wash mine hands in innocency:
so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:
D. 7 That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving,
and tell of all thy wondrous works.
C’. 8 LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house,
and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
B’. 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.
A’. 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.
