1aO Yahweh, hear a just cause. Hear my cry; heed my prayer [I make] without deceitful lips.
Let my vindication come forth from you; let your eyes see fairness.
You have tried my heart; you have examined [me] by night; you have tested me; you found nothing. I have decided [that] my mouth will not transgress.
As for [the] works of humankind, by the word of your lips, I have kept [from] the ways of [the] violent.
[I have] held my steps in your path My feet will not slip.
As for me, I have called on you because you will answer me, O God. Incline your ear to me. Hear my words.b
