Psalm 17:1-6 GW

1 Hear my plea for justice, O LORD. Pay attention to my cry. Open your ears to my prayer, [which comes] from lips free from deceit.
2 Let the verdict of my innocence come directly from you. Let your eyes observe what is fair.
3 You have probed my heart. You have confronted me at night. You have tested me like silver, but you found nothing wrong. I have determined that my mouth will not sin.
4 I have avoided cruelty because of your word. In spite of what others have done,
5 my steps have remained firmly in your paths. My feet have not slipped.
6 I have called on you because you answer me, O God. Turn your ear toward me. Hear what I have to say.
