1Hear the right,a O LORD,attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feignedlips.2
Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyesbehold the things that are equal.3
Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress .
Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.5
Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footstepsslipb not.
I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God:incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.
