A Prayer for Vindication

1 aJudge me, O Yahweh, because I have walked in my integrity, and I have trusted Yahweh and not wavered. 2 Prove me, O Yahweh, and test me. Try my {innermost being}b and my {mind}.c 3 Because your loyal love [is] before my eyes, and I walk about in your faithfulness. 4 I do not sit with deceitful people, nor will I go about with hypocrites. 5 I hate [the] crowd of evildoers, and with [the] wicked I will not sit. 6 I will wash my hands in innocence, and I will walk about your altar, O Yahweh, 7 to declare with a voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all your wondrous deeds. 8 O Yahweh, I love [the] dwelling of your house,d and {the place where your glory abides}.e 9 Do not destroy mef with [the] sinners, nor my life with men of bloodshed, 10 in whose hands [is] an evil plan, and whose right hand is full of bribes.g 11 But as for me, I will walk in my integrity. Redeem me and be gracious to me. 12 My foot stands on level ground. In assemblies I will bless Yahweh.
