A prayer of David: Hear a just cause, ADONAI, heed my cry; listen to my prayer from honest lips.
Let my vindication come from you, let your eyes see what is right.
You probed my heart, you visited me at night, and you assayed me without finding evil thoughts that should not pass my lips.
As for what others do, by words from your lips I have kept myself from the ways of the violent;
my steps hold steadily to your paths, my feet do not slip.
Now I call on you, God, for you will answer me. Turn your ear to me, hear my words.
