By David: Vindicate me, ADONAI, for I have lived a blameless life; unwaveringly I trust in ADONAI.
Examine me, ADONAI, test me, search my mind and heart.
For your grace is there before my eyes, and I live my life by your truth.
I have not sat with worthless folks, I won't consort with hypocrites,
I hate the company of evildoers, I will not sit with the wicked.
I will wash my hands in innocence and walk around your altar, ADONAI,
lifting my voice in thanks and proclaiming all your wonders.
ADONAI, I love the house where you live, the place where your glory abides.
Don't include me with sinners or my life with the bloodthirsty.
In their hands are evil schemes; their right hands are full of bribes.
As for me, I will live a blameless life. Redeem me and show me favor.
My feet are planted on level ground; in the assemblies I will bless ADONAI.
