Vindicate a me, O LORD,
For I have b walked in my integrity.
c I have also trusted in the LORD;
I shall not slip. 2 d Examine me, O LORD, and 1 prove me;
Try my mind and my heart. 3 For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes,
And e I have walked in Your truth.
I have not f sat with idolatrous mortals,
Nor will I go in with hypocrites. 5 I have g hated the assembly of evildoers,
And will not sit with the wicked.
I will wash my hands in innocence;
So I will go about Your altar, O LORD, 7 That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving,
And tell of all Your wondrous works.
LORD, h I have loved the habitation of Your house,
And the place 2 where Your glory dwells. 9 i Do 3 not gather my soul with sinners,
Nor my life with bloodthirsty men, 10 In whose hands is a sinister scheme,
And whose right hand is full of j bribes.
But as for me, I will walk in my integrity;
Redeem me and be merciful to me. 12 k My foot stands in an even place;
In the congregations I will bless the LORD.
