Hear a just cause, O LORD; 1attend to my cry! Give ear to my prayer from lips free of deceit!
From your presence 2let my vindication come! Let your eyes behold the right!
You have 3tried my heart, you have 4visited me by 5night, you have 6tested me, and you will find nothing; I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.
With regard to the works of man, by the word of your lips I have avoided the ways of the violent.
My steps have 7held fast to your paths; my feet have not slipped.
I 8call upon you, for you will answer me, O God; 9incline your ear to me; hear my words.
