1 A Psalm of David. Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in my truthfulness. I have trusted also in the LORD; I shall not slide.
2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; purify my heart and my mind.
3 For Your loving-kindness [is] before my eyes; and I have walked in Your truth.
4 I have not sat with lying men, neither will I go in with hypocrites.
5 I have hated the congregation of evil-doers, and will not sit with the wicked.
6 I will wash my hands in innocency; so I will go around Your altar, O LORD,
7 so that I may cry out with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all Your wonderful works.
8 LORD, I have loved the dwelling place of Your house, and the place where Your honor dwells.
9 Do not take away my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men
10 in whose hands [is] a plot, and their right hand is full of a bribe.
11 But I will walk in my truthfulness; redeem me and be merciful to me.
12 My foot stands in an even place; in the congregations I will bless the LORD.
